First Nations Power Authority of Saskatchewan (FNPA) is a not-for‐profit entity created to facilitate the development of First Nations‐led power projects with SaskPower and promote First Nations participation in procurement opportunities with SaskPower through a well-defined, mutually beneficial, long-term agreement.
FNPA will provide knowledge, expertise, and contacts to First Nations and SaskPower in the development of power projects and other power related procurement opportunities.
FNPA will provide information and support to groups entering into discussions with First Nations and will work towards developing a process to assist in the development of relationships between the First Nations people of Saskatchewan and SaskPower.
Many power project developments occur in remote lands and traditional territories of First Nations; by working with power developers, First Nations can create long-term sustainable value for their members through employment, infrastructure, new business opportunities and genuine profit sharing. First Nations interested in pursuing power development projects are encouraged to become members of FNPA to better understand SaskPower’s strategic procurement for power generation in the future.
