Sandy Lake


This Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement is located in northwestern Ontario. It is 43.5 miles from Manitoba. Their leaders signed Treaty 5 but they obviously are Treaty 9. Sandy Lake is one of two Ojibwa settlements located around large Sandy Lake. The other is Keewaywin. According to the 2006 census, the population of Sandy Lake is 1,843. The settlement has 458 housing units. The average household size is 4.0 persons per housing unit. However, the correct population of Sandy Lake may be closer to 3,000 to 3,500. It is common for isolated Ojibwa settlements to have several families sharing the same home. Around 810 continue to speak Anishinabe according to the 2006 census. Below is a link to a google earth picture of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Sandy Lake. It is blurry and not as clear as that of Keewaywin which is on the lakes east end.
