CGI Group, Inc. (TSX: GIB.A) (NYSE: GIB), a leading provider of information technology and business process services, today announced its plans to develop an SAP (NYSE: SAP) Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Regina, Saskatchewan, creating at least 70 highly skilled IT jobs and building on CGI's commitment to growth in Western Canada.

In partnership with SaskTel, Saskatchewan's leading telecom provider, and through the CoE, CGI will provide IT services, including application management, project consulting and delivery and infrastructure management to clients in Saskatchewan and Western Canada.

As part of CGI's global and local delivery model, CGI has a network of SAP Centres of Excellence in Canada, the United States, India and Europe, with SAP experts delivering SAP based solutions to the public and private sector. This SAP Centre of Excellence will be CGI's first in Western Canada.

"This agreement between SaskTel and CGI provides an important boost to a key sector of Saskatchewan's diversifying economy," said Bill Boyd, Minister responsible for SaskTel. "This new SAP Centre of Excellence will help build Regina's reputation within the Information and Communications Technology industry and will generate high quality job opportunities for Saskatchewan ICT professionals."

"CGI is a leading SAP Partner with extensive experience in the telecommunications industry and a strong track record of innovation within the SAP environment," said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. "SaskTel's new partnership with CGI will help us to maximize our investment in SAP, enabling SaskTel to become more efficient."

"CGI has a 35 year history of providing IT and consulting services to our clients," said Jim Dundas, Vice President, Saskatchewan, CGI. "Part of our success is our ability to develop unique, strategic partnerships like this agreement we've reached with SaskTel. By working together, we're creating 70 opportunities for highly skilled IT professionals to work and live here in Saskatchewan—and with our long-term vision for this CoE, I'm confident this is just the beginning."
