Moose Jaw, Sask., nears closer to its first urban reserve after agreement with Kawacatoose First Nation - Saskatchewan - CBC News: Under the agreements signed Monday, the city will provide policing, fire protection, snow removal, as well as water and sewer services. The First Nation will pay for utilities and protective services. According to the city, the fee-for-service is calculated the same way as property taxes and is equal to the amount that would be billed for municipal taxes.

To gain urban reserve status, the agreement needs a governor in council order from the federal government, a process which is expected to take a few months.

"Kawacatoose First Nation is honoured to have a business located in the city of Moose Jaw, a city that has a mayor and council who value strong, forward thinking relationships with First Nations people. This represents a significant milestone for a prosperous and successful partnership that will be recognized throughout Canada," said Chief Dennis Dustyhorn.
