Urban Reserves & Treaty Land Entitlement
Treaty Land Entitlement (TLE) is a process used by the Federal and Provincial governments to resolve outstanding obligations to First Nations who did not receive all of the Reserve land to which they were entitled under Treaty. TLE has enabled First Nations to purchase land and transfer it to Reserve status. The City of Saskatoon welcomes these investments in the city and the region, which support the economic, environmental, social, and cultural well-being of the entire community. Before an urban Reserve is created, the City of Saskatoon and the First Nation sign agreements that cover commitments to work together, municipal services, fees for services, and compatible standards for development.

First Nation Community Profiles
The City of Saskatoon partners with First Nations that have land holdings and reserves in the Saskatoon region, creating First Nation Community Profiles. The Community Profiles are intended to encourage new relationships with First Nations and promote economic opportunity.
The First Nation Community Profiles feature information on:
