The Metis Nation of Saskatchewan (MNS) is offering a financial aid package to help with the burdens placed on its members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the MNS, $2.8 million will go towards helping with childcare, personal protective equipment and what its calling “financial household distress.”

The money is coming from the federal aid package to Indigenous communities that adds up to $305 million.

“This is the first time in our history as a Metis Nation that a government in Saskatchewan has the capacity to be able to react or deal with an emergency situation like this pandemic,” said MNS President Glen McCallum. “It’s very good to have those resources to be able to deal directly with our government which is made up of our local presidents with over 100 locals in our province.”

According to McCallum, this is part of a larger relief package that will be announced in the days to come.
