Saskatoon Tribal Council

Tribal Chief Mark Arcand joined the Saskatoon Tribal Council (STC) Treaty Office as the Tribal Chief after two successful terms as Vice Chief. STC works for the seven communities as well as Chiefs and Councils who guide the STC vision and direction. As an STC leader and former employee who grew up in an STC community, Tribal Chief Arcand was driven to improve the quality of life through capacity building, and bringing forward momentum with emphasis on reversing residential school effects through bridging strong cultural connections for coming generations. His greatest commitment is helping youth excel and build their dreams through developing the gift in each child. This means working to decrease the barriers they face and increasing access to equal opportunities. Tribal Chief Arcand believes strongly in being a positive leadership role model. STC has grown into a leading First Nations organization, working together with leaders, knowledge keepers, and community members to support their nations through fostering growth and prosperity.”
