During her time in Regina, Tegan was welcomed to attend SaskPower’s Aboriginal Procurement Annual Information Session to learn about how SaskPower is working to expand its partnerships with Indigenous businesses. She also had the privilege to attend a two-day Saskatchewan Government Relations workshop on implementing the duty to consult in the province, as well as a Provincial-Federal roundtable with the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan Executive to discuss consultation with the Métis.
For her research, Tegan reached out to interview SaskPower employees whose work involves Indigenous engagement at a variety of levels, and she facilitated two workshops on the duty to consult and engagement as they relate to SaskPower’s operations. Upon completion of her two Mitacs internships, Tegan is now moving into the data analysis and writing phase of her research. She is grateful for the warm welcome she received at SaskPower, not only from the Aboriginal Relations Department, but also from the wider Corporate Relations team."
