Memorandums of Understanding

Chief Electoral Officer Dr. Michael Boda has signed an MOU with some Saskatchewan First Nations, including Lac La Ronge Indian Band Chief Tammy Cook-Searson, to work together to reduce barriers in voting.

Saskatchewan has 74 First Nations with a total First Nations population of 114,570. There are five major linguistic groups: Cree, Dakota, Dene (Chipewyan), Nakota (Assiniboine) and Salteaux.

Partnerships

The Chief Electoral Officer is committed to building collaborative relationships with First Nation Chiefs and Métis Leaders throughout the province. Partnerships have been developed to establish Letters of Authorization, which are a regulated form of acceptable identification, signed by the Chief of each participating Band. These can be used to legally establish the identity of Band members and verify their address. These letters play an important role in reducing barriers for First Nations voters who may have trouble producing identification that includes both name and address.

In 2019-20, an international team of experts in elections administration visited bands and consulted with First Nations Chiefs and band officials. The results of these consultations were incorporated into the Electoral Access Initiative to craft a collaborative and respectful approach that would engage First Nations in the election both as election workers and as voters.

Elections Saskatchewan’s outreach to First Nations was a success in the 29th General Election. It was the relationship-building that had been underway since the last election that built the trust required for Elections Saskatchewan to be welcomed onto so many reserves throughout the province. Elections Saskatchewan looks forward to working together with First Nations and Métis communities for the 30th General Election to remove barriers to voting.

Land Acknowledgement

Saskatchewan’s Chief Electoral Officer and all who work for Elections Saskatchewan in fulfilling its legislative mandate acknowledge that we are on Treaty 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, & 10 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis Peoples. We are committed to working together to build positive relationships with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people, seeking to remove barriers to voting and democratic participation while moving forward together in reconciliation.
