MN-S makes offer to purchase former Rivier Academy to build private school, other facilities

The Métis Nation Saskatchewan (MN-S) has made an offer to purchase the former Rivier Academy in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. City councillors were in favour of the acquisition and application for a development permit. MN-S has a variety of plans for the land after it is acquisitioned, including building catering services, a childcare centre, a health clinic, an office, a private school, and a public assembly. “We are hopeful about the possibilities that a facility like 1405 Bishop Pascal Place might provide,” said the MN-S in a statement. “Our Métis Nation–Saskatchewan government looks for opportunities to build capacity across the province to improve our communities’ well-being, including Métis cultural and educational projects.”
