Reducing work place injuries and deaths within First Nation communities is the focus of a new provincial organization that is hosting its first provincial conference next month in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The conference is being organized and hosted by the Saskatchewan First Nations Safety Association (SFNSA), an organization that aims to generate greater public safety awareness, provide advice, advocacy, training and safety management to First Nations.


“The conference is a critical component of our strategy to engage First Nations and broaden education and awareness. The conference will also promote the SFNSA’s programs and services which are designed to meet the needs of First Nations at the community level,” SFNSA Chief Executive Officer Toby Desnomie said in a press release.

“The provincial conference in October will provide all First Nation communities throughout the region an opportunity to engage, learn and network with the SFNSA to improve worker and workplace health and safety,” Desnomie said.
