Wanuskewin heritage park got a financial gift from a Saskatoon couple Wednesday, which will expand the Indigenous art program and make it more accessible to more people into the future.

A donation of $675,000 was made by Olivia and Greg Yuel, which funded two new galleries at the park, as well as an artist-in-residence program. Greg Yuel says he and his wife Olivia want to support Indigenous artists through the donation, and help Wanuskewin’s bid to be a UNESCO world heritage site with the added programming.

Greg Yuel is President of PIC Investment Group, and this Yuel family business has a long history of supporting growth in Saskatchewan.
