Land and Natural Resources

Métis worldview reflects an ecological perspective that advocates careful use of renewable and non-renewable resources. Sustainability means finding a balance between environmental and economic needs.


Minister: Robert Doucette

The Department of Lands and Resources promotes and protects Métis interests regarding environmental issues. It ensures a flow of information between the provincial and federal governments, industry, and Métis Nation-Saskatchewan citizens.

  • We provide support and advice on issues regarding Duty to Consult, Harvesting, and environmental issues facing today’s Métis.
  • We strive to include Métis participation in consultation and  decisions affecting the  Locals, Regions and the Province.
  • We promote relationships with the Crown regarding Métis harvesting rights.
  • We contribute to stakeholder committees to ensure a Métis perspective.
