Several Saskatchewan organizations have joined together in a two-day conference to explore the opportunities that resulted from land claims settlements. Prosperity Through Partnerships, the last of a three-part series on creating wealth through the land claim settlement process, is taking place March 8 and 9, 2017 at TCU Place in Saskatoon.

The conference is looking at:

  • The reserve creation process for the purpose of working together through local and provincial partnerships in Saskatchewan;
  • How to increase economic prosperity and the quality of life for both First Nations and the wider public in the province by identifying actions for enhancing Aboriginal well-being and participation in our community; and
  • How business communities have entered an era of newfound partnership and prosperity with Saskatchewan First Nations, urban and rural municipalities, which began with the 1992 Saskatchewan Treaty Land Entitlement Framework Agreement.

The three-part conference series is a partnership between the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, the City of Saskatoon, the City of Regina, Aboriginal and Northern Development Canada, the Government of Saskatchewan, the Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Authority and the Saskatchewan First Nations Economic Development Network.

Prior events focused on financial and resource partners and additions to reserves for community development.
