Emergency Preparedness Kit Giveaway

The Métis Nation–Saskatchewan Ministry of Lands and Environment is pleased to announce a 2024 Emergency Preparedness Kit giveaway! These kits are part of an MN–S Emergency Management Program that provides education, awareness, and resources to Métis citizens, to enable them to be better prepared when natural disasters or climate-related emergencies arise, such as wildfires, flooding, or severe storms. A total of 500 emergency preparedness kits are available.


To be eligible for this giveaway, you must be a Métis citizen and reside within the province of Saskatchewan. Kits are restricted to one per household. Applicants must be 18+ years old.

While all citizens are encouraged to apply, there is a limited supply of emergency preparedness kits and prioritization methods will be used to target individuals and families who are more vulnerable to or during emergency situations. This includes remote locations that may have slower emergency response times, households with young children and/or elderly relatives, or those with health or mobility issues.

The emergency preparedness kits can prepare four people to be self-sufficient for up to 72 hours in emergencies where you may be without power, food, water, or access to a safe evacuation route.
