(Saskatoon, SK, Treaty 6 Territory) The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) and Saskatchewan Institute of The Conference Board of Canada signed a Memorandum of Understanding today to work together on the 20th anniversary edition of Saskatchewan and Aboriginal Peoples in the 21st Century: Social, Economic and Political Changes and Challenges.

“The original report published 20-years ago forecasted an emerging First Nations population that would need to be prepared to take its rightful place in Saskatchewan’s economy,” said FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron. “The anniversary edition of this report will provide an update on the progress made in preparing the young vibrant First Nation population.”

“Once completed, the 20th Anniversary edition will supply insights that strengthen policy across a wide range of education, employment, health, and economic development portfolios,” said Roger Francis, Director of the Saskatchewan Institute. “Organizations throughout Saskatchewan will benefit from its publication.”
