Saskatchewan Cluster Roadmap

SEDA has developed a three-phase road map to guide organizations in assessing and amplifying existing and emerging clusters. 


  • Using quantitative (secondary data analysis) and qualitative (business interviews) processes, identify and assess existing and latent clusters.
  • Isolate potential opportunities for collaboration via a cluster SWOT.
  • Map existing and potential industry linkages – sector-specific and cross-sector.
