The donation will also help support youth education, environmental sustainability and indigenous arts and culture.

Part of the renewal project includes re-introducing a bison herd to the plains.

“It’s incredible, the fact that we are going to have a herd of bison in an urban setting,” Ryan Barclay, the Saskatchewan district vice-president for TD Canada Trust, said about the renewal project.
