2. Twenty-Six Infrastructure Projects in Saskatchewan Get Federal and Provincial Funding

The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan recently announced funding for 26 projects in communities across the province under the New Building Canada Plan’s Small Communities Fund.

The total eligible cost of the 26 projects is $34,552,032, with the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan each providing up to $11,517,335. This is the first set of projects approved under the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component (PTIC). Additional projects from the first PTIC intake will continue to be announced, including projects in Regina and Saskatoon, the north, and all other eligible applicants. All eligible applications to PTIC remain under consideration for funding. 

The Small Communities Fund is part of the $10 billion Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component of the New Building Canada Fund. The Small Communities Fund allocation for Saskatchewan is $43,665,808 and further announcements will be made in the future. The July 31 announcement allocates less than five per cent of the funding available under PTIC.

3. Apply for a First Nations and Metis Community Engagement Project or sponsorship

The Office of the Provincial Interlocutor (OPI) for First Nations and Métis Relations was established within Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Government Relations in May 2012. The role of the office is to provide a bridge to conversation and engagement between the Saskatchewan government and Aboriginal organizations — a bridge that also involves non-Aboriginal stakeholders.

In 2014-15, the OPI supported nine projects and they are planning to increase the number of funded projects this year. Grants under its First Nations and Métis Community Engagement Projects promote practical arrangements and partnerships that align with government priorities and support First Nations and/or Métis people and communities. 

Applications for the First Nations and Métis Community Engagement Projects are accepted online before December 5, 2015.

The OPI also provides small Sponsorships to First Nations and Métis communities or non-profit organizations to assist with public events that benefit Aboriginal people.  It’s easy to make an application online.

Please do not hesitate to contact the OPI for any additional information or assistance in applying by calling 306-798-0183 or by emailing
