Background and update


Map: Lands set aside for aboriginal settlement in Temagami

Lands set aside in October 1993 for a land- claim settlement.

Within the designated area, only Crown lands are set aside. All set-aside lands are mainland, except the two largest islands in Cross Lake (shown on map).

Negotiations, restarted in June 2000, will determine the final boundaries of lands transferred to the Nishnabai. This may be a mix of private and Indian reserve lands. Some restrictions over their use may be determined in a final agreement.

Size: 149 square miles

Final settlement size: max. 127 square miles


Skyline Reserve: 109 square miles
