At Matthewson & Co., we specialize in supporting small-population communities serious about meeting their community economic development goals. We work with your community to make the most of your resources. We offer our experience and expertise to help you realize the potential of your local economy and help build capacity to help you move forward. Welcome to our website.
Our services are customized, affordable, and accessible. We believe that our small towns, villages, hamlets, and communities are essential to provincial economies and, as such, deserve all the supports they need to be economically sustainable. Our services are based on strong economic development principles, legislation, and lifelong learning.
Our office is located in Carlyle, SK. It is part of Treaty 4 Territory and the traditional lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Lakota, Dakota and Nakota nations. We pay our respects to the First Nation and Metis ancestors of this place.

We Build Communities
Small population communities are an important part of the provincial economy. Sometimes we need supports that are not readily available to us due to geography, lack of funds, or just not knowing where to start. We build upon what you already have in place and work with your existing staff to provide supports that are affordable and accessible.
