A New Legacy Begins
On April 11, 2016, community leaders from across northern Saskatchewan, Cameco, and AREVA Resources Canada Inc. announced the establishment of a legacy trust fund to provide funding for community projects for decades to come.
The Six Rivers Fund is for the north, by the north.
It is a trust fund to help northerners today, but more importantly it will grow. The idea was brought forward by northerners many years ago at a roundtable with Cameco. Eventually this led to a working group of leaders representing all regions of northern Saskatchewan. Now a not-for-profit organization – the Six Rivers Fund – will help all northerners benefit from the uranium mining industry long into the future.
Here's a look, in pictures and video, at the launch of the Six Rivers Fund on April 11, 2016.
