Exercising Treaty Rights in Saskatchewan
An individual exercising the Treaty right to hunt, fish and trap for food in Saskatchewan must:
  1. be a registered Indian, as defined by the Government of Canada's Indian Act;
  2. carry a valid Certificate of Indian Status; and
  3. be a member of a First Nation signatory to Treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 10, or a First Nation located within Saskatchewan that has not signed a Treaty.

More than 80,000 people participate in Canada's 300-year-old fur trade industry. The trapping industry in Saskatchewan includes more than 4,500 registered trappers and generates between $1.5 and $6 million every year.

Fur species are a renewable resource and many trappers depend on raw fur sales to supplement their annual income. Proper conservation and humane use will ensure the long-term sustainability of the resource and the trapping industry.
