Located in the western portion of northwestern Ontario, is the Chippewa settlement of Shoal Lake 39 A, which is one of
three Reserves which makes up the Shoal Lake First Nation. Latest population estimate (2006) puts the population of shoal
lake 39 a at 346, which is
a little higher than the 2001 population estimate of 330. There are 130 housing units in the small settlement, of which 127
are occupied. That gives the settlement a less than 3.0 persons per housing unit average, which is not normal for Chippewa settlements.
The Anishinabe language is doing good at this Chippewa settlement with at least 130 people still speaking Anishinabe. All people
in this settlement are Indian. Below are several links to pictures of the Chippewa settlement of Shoal Lake 39 A, Ontario.
