This Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement is located along the eastern shores of Lake Winnipeg. Berens River is an isolated community. If the planned road is constructed, it will cause many problems at Berens River and lead to a population decline. They will regret it! It extends from the shores of Lake Winnipeg, for about 5.5 miles inland along Berens River. According to the 2011 census, the population of Berens River is 1,028. Between 2006 and 2011, the population increased by nearly 300. In 2006, the population was 739. It is suspicious! In 2006, Berens River had 209 housing units which gives the community a 3.8 persons per housing unit size. At least 90 or more new housing units must have been constructed between 2006 and 2011. In the 19th century, leaders from the Berens River region signed Treaty 5 but an exodus of Chippewa's from Minnesota in the late 19th century, led to a change which led to Treaty 9. Below is a link to a picture of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Berens River.
