Indigenous Tourism Hitting New Strides in Saskatchewan: An Interview with Christian Boyle – SFNEDN
This month, SFNEDN talks to Christian Boyle, owner of Glyph Creative Strategy, about the budding Indigenous tourism in Saskatchewan.

It focused on the community development aspects of tourism. I loved the education I received there. After I got my diploma and I got a job as an Economic Development Officer in the Watrous region.
