Treaty Ten News - June 10, 2022 - Mayor of Beauval, SK - Nick Daigneault

Mayor Nick Daigneault has been serving the community of Beauval for six years. The driving force was he wanted to work in a position where a real difference could be made long-term. At the heart of this was the resurrection of the economic development corporation, which was then known as Amisk Development. The new formation led to a new re-branded corporation called Beauval Development Incorporated (BDI). 

The goal was to pursue opportunities that would grow the economic and business landscape of Beauval. One of the first acquisitions was the purchase of Blueberry Hills Water from a local entrepreneur. This laid the foundation and provided job opportunities and brought in revenue that would go back to community; the advantage of having a municipal owned corporation. 

One of the recurring conversations when it comes to Beauval is the fire that burned down the local arena. The arena had an ice rink and a mezzanine which was key for community gatherings. Mayor and council began looking at ways to meet this immediate need. The village office hall provided a temporary place to host functions, however it was time to look at something long-term. Years of planning and hard work led to the building of the BDI Hall/Village Office, which today is the main place to hold community functions when needed. It's a place where we can gather again, whether it's through sport, music, or community events the BDI Hall is the present place available that will meet those needs. 

BDI has grown from its early days, now owning a local gym, convenience store and community garden. Mayor Nick Daigneault, council and the BDI board of directors lead Beauval forward where we can grow together for future generations.

Sipisishk Communications was incorporated in February 1985 with the mandate of providing improved communication services for Beauval and area. In the beginning CIPI provided radio programming through the community over-the-air channel 3, operated three (3) over-the-air TV channels, produced a weekly newsletter, and hosted a TV Bingo. CIPI Cable was started in 1994 and began offering 30 analog TV channels to the community of Beauval which was a significant increase from the previous lineup of 3 over-the-air channels, and continued to add channels throughout the years and reached a total of 42 analog channels. In the fall of 2004, A new building was constructed and CIPI moved their operations to this new building in March 2005 which is our current base of operations to this day.

Digital Cable was a topic of discussion for many years within the company and community and finally become a reality for Beauval with the official launch of Digital Cable services on March 1, 2014. Most of the channels available are offered in different packages at very competitive pricing. CIPI Cable also offers HD channels as well as PPV events and movies. With the launch of the Digital Cable, the analog channel lineup also changed down to 33 channels.

For the first 9 years of operations, CIPI operated 3 over-the-air TV channels, local FM radio programming and produced a weekly newsletter. Over the decades with help and assistance of growing technologies and amazing staff, CIPI has continued to stay true to its original mandate of providing Beauval and area with improved communication services. Sipisishk Communications Incorporated has come a long way from its humble beginnings to now providing Digital Cable Services, an informative Weekly Newsletter, and weekday Radio Programming on 96.5FM.
