Mistawasis is located about 70 kilometers west of Prince Albert, and 120 kilometers north of Saskatoon. It covers an area of 125 square kilometers. In the past Mistawasis First Nation has utilized its land base for agriculture, fishing, hunting, fur trapping, silviculture, logging, herbs and craft materials.
Economic Development is not new to Mistawasis First Nation. It has always been based on the need to provide for the community, but also driven by a better quality of living. What culturally and historically started as being keepers of the land, grew to a trading industry, and has evolved into modern day business. It was with this mindset that Mistawasis First Nation started their journey to become a business ready entity that would provide financial stability as well as work opportunities for the Nation.
