to strengthen communities
Quint Development Corporation is a unique not-for-profit organization, focused on creating economic opportunities that help to strengthen communities and improve social conditions for Saskatoon residents.
The corporation was conceived by area residents with support from civic and provincial governments, and Saskatoon businesses. The goal is to create opportunities for stable housing, jobs and economic development in Saskatoon's West-side core neighbourhoods.
