Brunswick House First Nation


This Ojibway Indians First Nation is located 2.5 miles southeast of Chapleau, Ontario. Below are google earth photos of this Ojibway community. Their on-Reserve population is 85 according to 2016's census, They have 38 dwellings with 33 lived in. Average household size is 2.4 persons per household which is below normal for Ojibway communities. Ojibway Language is no longer spoken at Brunswick House First Nation. On July 25, 1906 their leaders signed Treaty 9. They are probably signatories to 1850s Robinson-Superior Treaty. That be with Michipicoten. When Treaty 9 was negotiated, these Ojibway People were known by another name. On June 1, 1925 Canada broke treaty and established Chapleau Game Preserve where these Ojibway People live. They also forbid Ojibway's from hunting and trapping. In 1973, corrupt white leaders again intruded and forced these Ojibway People to relocate closer to Chapleau which is a white city. They were left with very little land. Their Reserve is very small. It's 1.85 sq. km. or 0.7 sq. mi. Chapleau Game Preserve which is their real Reserve, covers 7,000 sq. km. or 2,700 sq. mi.
