Event Details

Location: Gordon Oakes Red Bear Centre, University of Saskatchewan

Date: Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Time: 1.00 p.m. – 4.00 p.m.

A 3-part panel series will be held on Thursday, September 27 to commemorate Muskeg Lake Cree Nation’s 30th Anniversary as Canada’s first created commercial urban reserve.

The signing of the Treaty Land Entitlement for Muskeg Lake Cree Nation in 1988 led to the creation of Canada’s first commercial urban reserve in Saskatoon called Asimakaniseekan Askiy (Veteran’s Land) which fostered economic development for the community through land leasing and entrepreneurial growth.  Central to this success story was the strong partnership between the City of Saskatoon and Muskeg Lake Cree Nation which was built on a foundation of trust and active relationship-building which continues to this day.

Panellists will focus their statements on the historical context, governance challenges and economic impacts, the role of government and reflections on the future of urbanization in Canada.

Peter Stoicheff, President of the University of Saskatchewan, George Lafond, Muskeg Lake Cree Nation and Mayor Charlie Clark will deliver opening remarks.
