As with many other Chippewa peoples, the citizens of Ouje-Bougoumou have a history in which the white invaders refused to respect their rights. They have been forced to relocate on several occasions. The last such incident happened in 1992. They were recognized (forced to lose their Anishinabe Nationality) by Canada and the village of Ouje-Bougoumou was built in 1992. The population of Ouje-Bougoumou according to the 2011 census was 725. This is the eastern most settlement of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation. It is located along the shores of Lake Opemiska.
