This website has been put together to serve as an informational and communication tool for the Cowessess membership and those interested in learning more about our community.
The Cowessess First Nation is located along the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley with Crooked Lake and the Qu’Appelle River. Cowessess First Nation is located 15 kilometers north of Broadview, Saskatchewan.
There are presently 3,692 members, with approximately 712 living on-reserve and 2,980 living off-reserve. Many of the off-reserve members live in urban centers across Canada, with some also residing in the United States, and as far away as Australia. Economic and Community Development and Education and Training initiatives are taking a lead role creating employment and providing services and programs for its membership, hence, bridging the gap between on and off reserve membership.
