Biography / Administrative history
The 1959 Annual Report of the Indian Affairs Branch is the first to refer to a Shellbrook Agency in Saskatchewan. At least some of the bands in its jurisdiction were administered previously by the Carlton Agency. In 1969, at the time of the merger of the Shellbrook Agency and the Duck Lake Agency to form the Saskatoon District, the bands being administered by the Shellbrook Agency included Big River, Pelican Lake, Mistawasis, Muskeg Lake, Sandy Lake, and Witchekan Lake. A separate Shellbrook Agency was re-established 1 January 1976 with responsibility for the Big River, Pelican Lake, Sandy Lake, and Witchekan Lake bands. The Shellbrook Agency was designated as a district effective 1 May 1986. In 1990 the Shellbrook District was dismantled and responsibility for the bands within its jurisdiction transferred to the Northwest District and the North Central District.
