Our Mission
Pasqua First Nation, with unity and respect of our Traditional
Ideals and Treaties, are working towards creating an
environment that promotes a higher quality of life and a
future for all through aggressively achieving Business
Development Opportunities and Partnerships
Our History
Pasqua First Nation is located 35 miles east of Regina, Saskatchewan, located
on the south side of Pasqua Lake. Pasqua First Nation was surveyed in 1876,
two years after the signing of Treaty #4, our first Chief, was Chief Pasqua who
was a major negotiator and signatory to our Treaty.
Pasqua First Nation original territory offered timber, agricultural, and hay lands,
and in later years it’s proximity to both the Canadian Pacific Railway mainline
and Grand Trunk Pacific Branch lines offered easy access to markets for
agricultural produce.
Initially the reserve encompassed and area of 60.2 square miles. According to
Government Agent for Treaty Four, Angus McKay, the fact that the Reserve
bordered on a lake with ample waterfowl and fish stocks, which the Indians
subsisted on for much of the summer months, was an advantage.
However, as a result of land surrenders and expropriation by the Federal
Government of Canada there has been a reduction in the land base to an area
of approximately 36 square miles. The history of the Pasqua First Nation is
common to the majority of Indian bands in the province.
