Workshop: Maximizing the Benefits of TLEs & Cannabis Taxation on Saskatchewan First Nation Lands

Many Saskatchewan First Nations are interested in maximizing the benefits from their TLE lands. Other Saskatchewan First Nations are interested in exploring options to implement their cannabis tax and regulatory powers. Saskatchewan First Nations also have one of the highest growth rates in First Nations Fiscal Management (FMA) participation.

This workshop will discuss how Saskatchewan First Nations can use their FMA powers and institutions and other jurisdictions to increase their benefits from TLEs. It will present ideas about how to use First Nation jurisdiction and other tools to improve service agreements with local governments, to finance and build the necessary infrastructure and create a competitive business climate. It will discuss specific examples of TLE opportunities and challenges.

This workshop will also present the proposed option for First Nation cannabis tax jurisdiction developed by the FNTC with proponent First Nations and submitted to the Senate.

This workshop could be of interest to First Nation leaders and administrators, lawyers, policy makers and local governments interested in getting more benefits from Saskatchewan TLE opportunities. It would also be of interest to anyone interested in the First Nation cannabis tax jurisdiction proposal. 

Limited travel assistance available.
