Partnering for Prosperity - Lac la Ronge Indian Band
Over the past three years, Cameco and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band (LLRIB), have continued to collaborate to advance the LLRIB’s goals for the funding provided under the collaboration agreement signed in 2017.
An important part of this relationship is ongoing communication between the community and the Implementation Committee. Partnering for Prosperity – 2019 Annual Report is one of the ways LLRIB band members can see the progress made over the past year.
Despite the impacts of Cameco’s McArthur River/Key Lake operations continuing in care and maintenance, 2019 saw progress made under the four pillars – Workforce Development, Business Development, Community Investment and Community Engagement/Environmental Protection. Details are contained in the report.
The realities of ongoing weak uranium markets, combined with the public health crisis presented by COVID-19 today, have affected benefits under the agreement. Optimizing those community benefits and further strengthening partnerships in Saskatchewan’s north will continue to be Cameco’s focus as we move forward together.
And we believe, together, we will be well-positioned to benefit from the strong uranium market fundamentals on the horizon.
