Ontario First Nations Map
How to locate First Nation reserves, Tribal Councils, political organizations and land covered by treaties.
The Ontario First Nations map shows the locations of:
- First Nation communities: listed by band number and cultural affiliation (e.g., Algonquin, Cree, Ojibway)
- Tribal Councils (a grouping of bands with common interests who join together to provide advice and programs to their members)
- reserves (land set aside for bands under the Indian Act and treaty agreements)
- political organizations (e.g., Union of Ontario Indians, Grand Council Treaty 3)
- land covered by specific treaties
The border shows symbols that have special meaning to First Nations in Ontario.
