Brunswick House, Ontario


This Ojibway settlement is located very near the settlements of Chapleau 74A and Chapleau 75. In Ojibway, Duck Lake is pronounced as Ga-mi Shi-shib or Ga-mi Shib. It is three miles northeast of Chapleau 74A settlement and three miles east of the white city of Chapleau. This Ojibway settlement has a corrupted history with Canada. They are closely related to Ojibway's from Michipicoten. In fact, Michipicotens Reserve may have been much larger than white historians wrote. Missanabie is also closely related to Michipicoten Ojibway's. Michipicotens Reserve may have extended northeast to Missanabie from Michipicoten, southeast to Chapleau and southwest to Montreal River Harbour. Canadian leaders sent representatives to the community who talked with the community's leaders in 1925 or bribed them. In 1947, a new settlement was established which became known as Mountbatten 76A. Canada continued to talk to the leaders of this community and in 1973 an exchange of land led to the establishment of Duck Lake 76B, which is Brunswick House. Originally, the community was known as the New Brunswick House Ojibways. The Chapleau 75 community is obviously related to this community. Duck Lake 76B has a population of 85 according to a 2016 census. Duck Lake 76B has a total of 38 housing units with 33 lived in year round. Average household size is 2.4 persons per housing unit. Below are links to pictures of the Ojibway settlement of Brunswick House or Duck Lake 76B.
