Launch of the official Moosomin First Nation app for members • iPhone in Canada Blog

Chief Kahpeaysewat has launched an official Moosomin First Nation app for smartphones to help them communicate with their members.

The Moosomin First Nation is a Cree nation that controls 13 reservations north of North Battleford, Saskatchewan.

Using push notifications, the app distributes news, resources, documents, event information, and more alerts to community members.

User-friendly features like in-app search, quick and easy check-in, and one-touch calendar integrations remove barriers for seniors who may be less comfortable with technology.

The app is regularly updated to ensure compatibility with the latest operating system updates and device sizes, and to introduce new features and updates to the app.


“Almost half of our members live off the reserve, so it’s important to make sure they feel connected to the community,” Chief Kahpeaysewat explained. “Push notifications are a quick and easy way to grab the attention of our members and make them less likely to miss an announcement or feel cut off from their culture and community.”

Features for app users include:

  • Sign up for an account
  • News
  • events
  • Jobs
  • documents
  • forms
  • Job opportunities
  • Band Meeting Announcements
  • community events
  • emergency notices
  • Programs and Training
  • And more

The official Moosomin First Nation app is now available to download for iOS and Android devices.
