The provincial government hopes to increase awareness about treaty issues and promote racial harmony through public education.


That’s why the government is giving the Office of the Treaty Commissioner $100,000 to expand its strategy to increase public understanding about Aboriginal issues.


The money will be used to develop new exhibits for the general public, enhance the OTC’s Speakers’ Bureau and create additional displays.


First Nations and Metis Relations Minister Maynard Sonntag says supporting an established and respected organization like the Office of the Treaty Commissioner is a good way to build bridges between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Saskatchewan.
