Land Use Plan Update
Over the last 6 months, Muskoday First Nation has been working on updating the Land Use Plan that was adopted in 2002. After community consultations and numerous drafts, Chief and Council have given the document 1st, 2nd and 3rd reading. There will now be a public posting for thirty (30) days for members to give input if they wish to the final draft.
Please check out the posting here and if you have questions or concerns, please contact Joe Munroe in the Lands Department at (306) 764-1282 or through our toll free number at 1-877-687-5632.
The Muskoday First Nation has a profound relationship with the Land that is rooted in respect for the spiritual value of the Earth and the gifts of the Creator and has a deep desire to preserve its relationship with the land and maintain the integrity and success of our Nation.
Muskoday First Nation encompasses 25,106 acres on three reserves in central Saskatchewan. The main reserve (Muskoday First Nation #99) is located in the heart of the South Saskatchewan river valley and covers 23,696 acres. Most of the land is agricultural and some of the best in the province of Saskatchewan.
In June of 2013, Muskoday’s first Treaty Land Entitlement selections received reserve status (Muskoday First Nation #99A and #99B) in the Rural Municipality of Paddockwood, 42 km north of Muskoday. All of Muskoday’s land is administered under the Muskoday First Nation Land Code and the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management. Muskoday was the first reserve in the province of Saskatchewan to move away from the land sections of the Indian Act and take control over it’s own lands and resources on January 1, 2000.
Other fee simple lands that Muskoday owns through its holding company and is looking to achieve reserve status on include 2900 acres in the RM of Leroy, 640 acres in the RM of Paddockwood, 240 acres in the RM of Prince Albert and 55 acres in the RM of Corman Park.
