The Office of the Treaty Commissioner congratulates Pelican Lake First Nation for the designation of land in Saskatoon as an urban reserve.

“This exciting purchase of the historic Adams Lumber by Pelican Lake First Nation will create a new chapter for this business, the city and the province,” said Saskatoon Mayor Charlie Clark in a news release earlier this month.

“I have been impressed with the vision that Chief Bill and his Council have for creating opportunity in the lumber and building industry. I’m grateful that they have chosen to invest here in Saskatoon. The continued establishment of Urban Reserves in our city helps build opportunity for everyone into the future.”

The Mayor and Pelican Lake First Nation Chief Peter Bill, along with the Council of Pelican Lake First Nation, and Saskatoon Board of Police Commissioners Chair, Jyotsna (Jo) Custead, signed urban reserve agreements during a special signing ceremony.
