Quint Development Corporation exists to strengthen the economic and social well being of Saskatoon's five core neighbourhoods through a community based economic development approach. Quint, meaning five in Latin, represents the communities of Caswell Hill, King George, Pleasant Hill, Riversdale and Westmount.
In 1995, community representatives from the five neighborhoods formed a CED organization through which we work to improve our lives, our neighborhoods and ourselves.
