TD Bank of Canada has provided a gift of $500,000 to the University of Saskatchewan for the Indigenous Land Management Institute in support of education, scholarships and research in the area of Indigenous economic development. The funding will support the work of the ILMI with half of the money going directly toward internships that support student work and research in Saskatchewan. “Today’s donation continues to support the research being done at the ILMI and ensures our centre remains a leader in Indigenous land and resource management, both nationally and internationally,” said David Natcher, director of the ILMI. Since opening in 2008, the institute’s researchers have worked on projects that examine food security, investigate sustained economic growth for Saskatchewan First Nations and work to create more meaningful and informed Aboriginal engagement with large-scale development in Northern Saskatchewan.
