Fond-du-Lac is a settlement located in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Situated on the east side of Lake Athabasca it is a remote fly-in community. The population in 2011 was 874 inhabitants, mainly of Dene and Métis descent. 705 residents selected Dene as their mother tongue in 2011.
Fond du Lac means "end of the lake" in the French language.
Founded as a community over 150 years ago, by native peoples in pursuit of furs, fishing, hunting and trapping the community has seen little changes. Many in the community can trace their ancestral roots to the early 19th century. "Living off the land" is still a way of life in Fond-du-Lac.
Many of the residents are descendants of the Maurice's Band who signed an adhesion to Treaty 8 in 1899. The Maurice's Band (Chief Maurice Piche's Band) split in 1949 forming the Fond-du-Lac Band and the Black Lake Band.
Fond du Lac Dene Nation 
Fond du Lac is a First Nation with territories around the eastern area of Lake Athabasca at Fond du Lac 227 (land area 138.26 square km) where most of the population lives, Fond du Lac 229 (land area 88.42 square km), Fond du Lac 231 (land area 17.44 square km) bordering Athabasca Sand Dunes Provincial Park on the McFarlane River and Fond du Lac 232 (land area 17.83 square km). Fond du Lac has a total registered membership of 1842 with 1,045 members residing on-reserve and 796 members residing at locations off-reserve as of May, 2012.  The Fond-du-Lac Denesuline First Nation is a member of the Prince Albert Grand Council.
The main enterprise today in Fond-du-lac is working in the mineral and other resource extraction business. Others follow a tradition of fishing, hunting, and trapping as well as provide guiding services to the many fishing camps in the area.
There are minimal roads within the community and no year-round roads to the community. It is only accessible by air (through Fond-du-Lac Airport), inland water transport and snowmobile. In the winter there is a seasonal ice road with access to Uranium City and Stony Rapids (with the latter community in turn connected to the rest of the province via another ice road). The community greatly relies on aircraft and barges for supplies and services. In the winter the occasional truck will venture in on the ice road with supplies.
