Historic water territory claim filed

558 claim

 

The Saugeen Ojibway Nation is pursuing a landmark ownership claim of a large swath of government land across the entire Bruce Peninsula in Ontario. What is unique in this claim is that the Nation is seeking Aboriginal title over the “water territory” in addition to the land and seabed, as has traditionally been claimed. In addition, compensation of $90 billion is also being sought against the Crown for failing to protect and preserve the territory which consists of four reserves and a population of 1,900.
