How will the Algonquin land claim affect hunting in the area?

Ontario will ensure that harvesting rights are fairly balanced with continuing non-Aboriginal interests across the claim area.

Both the strong interest in hunting and fishing by non-Aboriginal people and conservation will be considered.

Since 1991, the Algonquins have conducted their moose harvests using a tag system, similar to that used by hunters throughout the rest of the province. The Algonquin harvest targets are worked out with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and based on the ministry's survey information.
