Employer Profile


The Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC) began in 1981 when the First Nations of Northwest Saskatchewan united to form the Meadow Lake District Chiefs Joint Venture. The Meadow Lake District Chiefs became officially known as the Meadow Lake Tribal Council in 1996.

Since that time, the Meadow Lake Tribal Council has become a testament to the cooperative nature of the nine Meadow Lake First Nations (MLFNs) that comprise the tribal council. Under the direction of the MLFNs Chiefs, the Meadow Lake Tribal Council has progressed steadily as a second-level programs and services provider. The dedication of the MLTC managers and staff has proven itself in the efficient and effective assistance it provides to the MLFNs-level programs and services that operate within the nine communities.
