Thirteen Indigenous communities who control more than 50 per cent of the provincial allocated and active wood supply in Saskatchewan have banded together.
An agreement signed between the Montreal Lake Cree Nation, Big River First Nation, Pelican Lake First nation, Witchekan Lake First Nation and the Meadow Lake Tribal Council was formalized in early December.
Al Balisky, CEO of the Meadow Lake Tribal Council Industrial Investments, said finalizing the agreement is the first step in executing the group’s vision of “supporting continued Indigenous investment and influence” in the provincial forest and climate sectors.
