Program Overview

First Nations University of Canada

The Indigenous Leadership Program (ILP) is offered in partnership with the First Nations University of Canada.


First Nation communities are facing tremendous challenges in the face of the growing demands of community members and keeping pace with the economic activity throughout Saskatchewan. The Indigenous Leadership Program is intended for Chiefs, Councilors, and senior Band administrators of First Nation communities, who have regular interaction with elected officials.

Working with First Nations communities, our facilitators will identify the unique needs of each client group and customize the 2-day workshop to ensure the training is successful. The goal of the Indigenous Leadership Program is to equip participants with essential leadership skills and tools they will use to implement good governance in their communities.
