First Nations interested in pursuing power development projects are encouraged to become members of FNPA to better understand SaskPower’s strategic procurement processes and requirements for power generation in the future.
There are two levels of FNPA Membership
First Nation Memberships:
FNPA provides First Nation Members with a process and pathway to develop and implement business opportunities in Saskatchewan. These opportunities, including power generation projects in Saskatchewan, will allow FNPA to create real value for their members through long‐term investment returns, employment, wealth creation and sustainability.
Power Generation Industry Memberships:
In light of the growing Saskatchewan economy, SaskPower is looking for new and innovative ways to grow its system capacity including a growing appetite for partnerships.
At the same time, SaskPower has learned some valuable lessons about the importance of including First Nations in their business plans – as have most utility companies across Canada. Though various regulatory environments exist across the country, there is common interest in Saskatchewan opportunities and the benefits of working with First Nations in a positive and meaningful way.
First Nation partnerships have proven their value in industries such as Oil & Gas and the power industry is viewing this investment not only as worthwhile in the short‐term but of strategic economic importance for the future.
The majority of First Nation Members will need experienced industry partners to develop these opportunities into successful projects. FNPA can assist industry members with identifying potential opportunities and partnership building.
