The Board of Directors wishes to recognize the late Honourable William McKnight, who in 1998 was a Founding Director of the Fund and long-standing Chair. He was not only instrumental to the success of the first Provincial Retail Venture Capital (RVC) Fund in Saskatchewan but represented the Province in his capacity as a Member of Parliament in Ottawa, holding numerous cabinet positions. As the former Saskatchewan Treaty Commissioner, he was a tremendous influence, closing the divide between First Nations and non-First Nations people for a better Province. Mr. McKnight was instrumental in the creation of the Saskatchewan Treaty Land Entitlement Framework Agreement and was also named Honorary Chief of Muskeg Lake Cree Nation. To acknowledge Mr. McKnight’s dedication to our Province, and, specifically, his contribution to the Fund, on behalf of the Board it is our privilege to bestow the title of Director Emeritus to the late Honourable William McKnight.
