The Flying Dust First Nation is located on the northeast side of the City of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. The band has a current membership of 1500 people with 700 living on the reserve. The area is home to some of the most fertile farmland in northern Saskatchewan. The City of Meadow Lake is an important service centre to the north western part of the province and provides many services and conveniences to that region. The NorSask Sawmill, Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp Industry and Meadow Lake OSB Ltd Partnership, all located just outside the reserve, provide many employment opportunities for the people of the area.
