30 Sask. First Nations have yet to file financial reports to Ottawa
REGINA – Time is running out for dozens of Saskatchewan First Nations who will face funding cuts next week unless they get their paperwork done for the federal government. The deadline to file was the end of July, but Ottawa won’t start withholding non-essential funding until Sept. 1.
Thirty of Saskatchewan’s 70 First Nations had still not filed as of noon Thursday, a non-compliance rate of 43 per cent.
