Following the Province’s new COVID restriction’s Peerless Trout First Nation would like to remind all residents of Peerless Lake, Trout Lake and its members to continue to follow all the COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, as well as those set-in place by the Nation. We continue to see numbers across the Province rise and it is more critical now then ever to stop the spread of this virus.

Currently, there has been confirmed 3 cases of COVID within the community. All three cases have been in isolation and with assistance from the Health Department are on the road to recovery. Also, those that were in close contact are in self isolation and waiting results and following all of the Health guidelines.

There has been a number of programs instituted by the Nation and would like to remind members to call in their information if they were missed.

  • Off Reserve support – All members will be receiving $150.00 to help for whatever is needed while being away from the communities. Please contact Sheirra Noskiye @ 780-649-4015 or sheirra.noskiye@ptfn.net and she will be able to provide details on how the financial support will be administered. If you would like to receive your payment before the Christmas break please contact Sheirra by December 14, 2020.
  • Community Members – All PTFN members are eligible to receive either a $300.00 allotment of propane or 2 loads of wood (Seniors 65+ will receive two loads of cut and chopped wood, all others it will be cut only) Please contact Linda Noskiye @ 780-649-1480 or linda.noskiye@ptfn.netto receive propane and please contact Beverly Noskiye @ 587-279-3235 or income.support@ptfn.net receive firewood.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE OFFICE IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC AND THE HOLIDAY BREAK WILL BE FROM DECEMBER 21ST TO JANUARY 4TH

We all must keep practicing the safety measures set out by the Province and to follow the restrictions put in place by the Nation. The more that everyone follows the guidelines, the sooner the Provincial cases will drop and restrictions may begin to be lifted again.

Thank you
