Parks, Culture and Sport offers a substantial amount of funding to community organizations and programs, ranging from the now crippled Active Families Benefit tax, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and a few Francophone initiatives throughout the province. The ministry has experienced some ebbs and flows in its staffing but it has remained a fairly consistent entity.

Culture, Parks and Sport employed six consulting firms in the years examined. These included:







Consulting trends for this department were fairly innocuous compared to other agencies. Across the surveyed years the annual total paid to consulting agencies totalled: $60,109.00 in 2013-2014, $469,313.00 in 2012-2013, $50,383.00 in 2008-2009, and $0.00 in 2005-2006.

The two years under $100,000 represent only one contract each year, which when looking at the 2006-2006 result of $0 being spent on consulting firms not terribly surprising. The 2012-2013 total of $469,313.00 is the largest sum spent on consulting across the board for this department,

Following the trend that has been noted in media reports, more spending on consultants occurred after the Sask Party took office in 2008-2009.
