Located in eastern Ontario about 21 miles west of Quebec, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Waugoshig has a population of 131 according to the 2011 census. The community has 35 housing units and an average household size of 3.8 persons per housing unit. Around 35 continue to speak Anishinabe at Waugoshig. I don't know what Waugoshig means in Anishinabe. They are a part of the Abitibiwinni of Quebec. Strangely, though they signed Treaty 9, those who lived in Quebec were brought in to sign Treaty 9 and the province of Quebec administered the affairs of both the Abitibiwinni in Ontario and Quebec until 1972. They continued living off the land until 1986. In that year, they established the settlement of Waugoshig. Ojibway land extended well in to Quebec which means so does Treaty 9 Reservation land. Below is a link to a picture of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Waugoshig.
