Member Testimonials

  • “STEP has been important to Cameco when it comes to accessing markets and making them aware of Saskatchewan and the capabilities it has. I still remember when STEP officials came to Kazakhstan and brought some Saskatchewan government ministers along and helped us open a market for production there. Whether it’s in Kazakhstan, China or India, STEP has been there. Whether we’re with them or they’re going in and laying the groundwork for Saskatchewan companies, it’s been a big benefit to Cameco, and we’re grateful for the work they’ve done.”

    - Tim Gitzel - Cameco - Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

  • “STEP has proven to be an invaluable resource for Market Intelligence information for our company. With exports, we are careful where we go. We can not afford to make too many mistakes so we listen to our peers in the business, discuss frequently with the staff at STEP on where they think potential markets could be, and proceed cautiously. STEP is turning out to be a great resource.”

    - Paul Degelman - Degelman Industries Ltd. - Regina, Saskatchewan
