  • First Nations were the original occupants of this Land we call Ontario.  The British Crown(government) and First Nations negotiated and signed treaties with the intent delivering mutual benefits.  First Nations signed as independent, self-governing nations.  Did you know that many treaties with First Nations People were signed more than a century ago?  These treaty commitments are just as valid today as they were then.  Ontario is covered by 46 treaties and other agreements.
