TLE Claim

The Matachewan First Nation has a historic claim that has been accepted by Canada and Ontario for negotiations. The Treaty Land Entitlement (TLE) Claim concerns the size of the reserve and how big it ought to have been when our ancestors signed the James Bay Treaty (Treaty 9) in 1906.

Matachewan First Nation maintains a newsletter to keep members informed on the progress of the TLE Claim and to notify the community on upcoming meetings.
