Sask. women entrepreneurs receive $4.6M in funding to grow companies

Sask. women entrepreneurs receive $4.6M in funding to grow companies Crystal Milburn didn’t set out to become an entrepreneur, but fell into the role when her family’s business took off six years ago. What started out as a u-pick farm called Grandpa’s Garden near Moose Jaw in 2012 soon blossomed to include a second business, Prairie Bee Meadery, where Milburn is now the owner and director. When she heard about a grant application for federal funding to help grow women-owned businesses, she knew her business fit the bill. “We had a project that would work for this, that given the limited resources you have as a small business and figuring out where to put your funds, we wouldn’t have been able to do for a couple of years,” she said.

“Christian’s success on and off the water makes him well-deserving to lead Team Sask into the opening ceremonies here in Swift Current.”

Patterson appreciates the honour.

“It’s pretty exciting,” he said. “It’s definitely the best thing that has happened to me in sports this year.”

Patterson, a 10-year member of the Wascana Racing Canoe Club, received the good news from Team Saskatchewan not long after learning that he had not made the Canadian squad for the 2019 junior world championships.

The subsequent good news about the Western Canada Summer Games — a multi-sport event that is to run from Friday to Aug. 18 in and around Swift Current — was a tonic.

“It kind of got me motivated to start training hard again,” Patterson said.

CMHC sees 'moderate overvaluation' in Canada's housing market, but little vulnerability overall

CMHC sees 'moderate overvaluation' in Canada's housing market, but little vulnerability overall After waving a red flag of warning about Canada's housing market for more than two years, Canada's national housing agency says the overall level of vulnerability has inched down from high to moderate over the past six months. That's one of the main takeaways of a quarterly report from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation on Thursday, in which the housing agency looks at some of Canada's biggest housing markets and assesses their risk level based on four factors: Overheating: when the number of home sales significantly outpaces the number of new listings.

An intensive training regimen isn’t anything new to Patterson, who is to compete in 12 races over four days at Lac Pelletier Regional Park.

In fact, he graduated from Dr. Martin LeBoldus Catholic High School in February in order to train in Melbourne, Fla., with the national team for three months as part of Canoe Kayak Canada’s NextGen program.

“It was a good springtime,” Patterson said with a chuckle, “and it has been a long summer.”

And a hectic one — with no let-up in sight.

“It will be busy — very busy,” Patterson said. “I’m also coaching eight hours a day at the club, so there’s lots of time in the heat.”

After the Western Canada Summer Games, his attention will turn to preparations for the Canadian sprint canoe kayak championships, which are slated for Aug. 27 to Sept. 1 in Regina.

Patterson is looking to build upon a fine performance at last year’s nationals. In 2018, he earned a silver medal in the 19-and-over C4 1,000 metres and placed third in the 17-and-under C2 1,000m in Sherbrooke, Que.

But, in a few short months, has has developed an affection for Saskatchewan. “This is something new to me, but I’ve enjoyed it,” Russell said. “The city is nice. It’s a quiet city. There’s good things to do. I’ve been introduced to Canadian football and I enjoyed that. The people are nice. Overall, I’ve loved it.” It helps that the Red Sox finished first in the Eastern Division with a 41-15 record.
