Statement from the University of Regina - February 11, 2010

The University of Regina has not changed its stance - we are committed to the principles that form the foundation of First Nations University of Canada - that First Nations people are the ones to define how education will be provided.

We are pleased to continue working with our federated college, the First Nations University of Canada, and FSIN's Chief Guy Lonechild to discuss all options that will support that college in pursuit of its mission.

A few days ago we invited the stakeholders - FSIN, the Government of Saskatchewan and the Government of Canada to meet next week to discuss the implications of the funding situation and we are pleased that the meeting will occur with all parties involved.
