Mining Supply Chain

Saskatchewan is the most attractive area for mining investors in the world, according to the Fraser Institute.

And Regina is eager to attract business. There is no corporate capital tax on new capital investments, and a 2 per cent small business tax rate. There are no payroll taxes or health insurance premiums. The corporate income tax rate is a favourable 11.5 per cent generally, and as low as 9.5 per cent for manufacturing.
