I am writing to let you know about the transfer of ownership of
Sask 1st Call from SaskEnergy to the Saskatchewan Common Ground Alliance (SCGA). With the confirmation of the recent Order in Council, the sale will be finalized on June 1, 2023.
Much of SCGA’s mandate is dedicated to ensuring public safety, environmental protection and effective damage prevention which generally mirrors that of Sask 1st Call - making it a good fit with the organization. You can learn more about SCGA here.
As a non-profit, SCGA operates on a break-even cost recovery basis characteristic of Sask 1st Call and there will be no increase in cost to member companies as a result of this transfer.
SCGA will set up Sask 1st Call as distinct entity with a separate board of directors governed by volunteers from industry, of which SaskEnergy, SaskPower and SaskTel each have permanent mandatory board seats.
Sask 1st Call will be held as a subsidiary by SCGA in order to maintain the name recognition and public goodwill currently attributed to the service. The transition of Sask 1st Call from SaskEnergy to SCGA is anticipated to be seamless, with minimal disruption to subscribers, locate requestors and the Saskatchewan public.
