Released on April 6, 2021

$193.7 Million to be Provided in 2021-22 Provincial Budget

With today's 2021-22 provincial budget, the Government of Saskatchewan maintains its commitment to support Indigenous people, communities, businesses and organizations through a targeted investment of more than $193 million, an increase of $5.7 million, or three per cent.

"This investment will further support First Nation and Métis communities in addressing the impacts of the pandemic, while contributing to Indigenous economic development, and ensuring a strong recovery for all," Minister Responsible for First Nations, Métis and Northern Affairs Don McMorris said.  "As we continue to collaborate on current vaccination efforts with our Indigenous partners, I look forward to a time when our lives return to normal and together we can continue to prioritize meaningful reconciliation efforts across the province.''

The 2021-22 provincial budget also includes $35 million in emergency pandemic supports for First Nation and Métis organizations that rely on revenues generated by casinos which have been impacted by the pandemic.

The 2021-22 budget highlights include:

  • $28.1 million in targeted career training funding for First Nation and Métis institutions and initiatives;
  • $18.6 million in funding provided to Indigenous post-secondary programs and institutions;
  • $17.3 million to support First Nations on-reserve police programs; and
  • $3.4 million to support the important work of the Métis Addictions Council of Saskatchewan.
