The staff at the Office of the Treaty Commissioner are heartbroken over the news of the passing of the lieutenant governor Tom Molloy. We send our condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues.

The 22nd lieutenant governor of Saskatchewan passed away on July 2, following a battle with cancer.

Molloy is well known for his work Treaty settlements, including the Nisga’a treaty in British Columbia in 2000, and negotiations, particularly in the discussion that led to the creation of Nunavut.

“He was known for his deep respect for Treaty, and his work towards Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples,” said Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan, Mary Culbertson. “The province has lost an outstanding advocate and role model.”

Molloy’s years of service earned him the Saskatchewan Order of Merit as well as an officer of the Order of Canada.
