Treaty Benefits: Hunting and Fishing Allocations and Triennial Clothing
Beginning in fiscal year 2011-2012, all First Nations in Saskatchewan who are eligible to receive the hunting and fishing allocation receive cheques in lieu of the ammunition. The cheques to the First Nations are requested in early February to allow the First Nations time to purchase ammunition for their treaty events. This change is to minimize exposure of potential threats to the security of Indigenous Services employees. The eligibility for Triennial Clothing is determined by each numbered Treaty. In lieu of providing a suitable suit of clothing, as specified in the Treaties, the department provides a clothing allowance of $250.
