The former grand chief of the Prince Albert Grand Council is starting a medical transportation service for people from Indigenous communities after the closure of the Saskatchewan Transportation Company.

Ron Michel said patients trying to get from Prince Albert to Saskatoon for hospital appointments have had to use taxis since the provincial bus service was shuttered last year. He said his new operation will offer scheduled, comfortable transit for patients and families who would struggle on their own.

“A lot of the services were cut off when the busses were discontinued,” Michel said. “There should be a more appropriate service for taking these people … that need (Royal) University Hospital and St. Paul’s Hospital for their appointments.”

Michel retired from his position as PAGC grand chief in 2017. He said he’s chosen to spend his retirement continuing to help the community. His new service caters directly to Indigenous people through the PAGC’s Spruce Lodge Boarding Home.
