April 28, 2022 — Ocean Man First Nation, Saskatchewan — Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada

Today, Chief Connie Big Eagle of Ocean Man First Nation and the Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations announced Ocean Man’s successful addition to reserve. The addition to reserve consists of one parcel of land totaling 295.98 acres which will enable the First Nation to expand their land base and create economic opportunities that will benefit community members.

The development of this partnership supports Indigenous economic development opportunities that help advance reconciliation. Additions to Reserve provide First Nations with a land base to build healthier, more sustainable communities and contribute to regional revitalization, which benefit both their communities and neighbouring municipalities.

Reserve creation generates economic opportunities and demonstrates Canada’s commitment to respect Treaty obligations while working with First Nations on shared priorities.

The Government of Canada is working with Ocean Man First Nation, as full partners, to advance reconciliation and help build a better future for the community through reserve creation.
