Deer Lake First Nation


This Ojibway Kasba Reservation settlement is located in northwestern Ontario. Leaders from Deer Lake did not sign Treaty 9 but did sign Treaty 5. However, their community is within Treaty 9 land area and historical records prove that about 75% of Ojibway People living at Island Lake in 1909, originally lived around Deer Lake-Favorable Lake and Big Trout Lake and Sandy Lake regions, of northwestern Ontario. That proves they didn't sign Treaty 5. Manitoba is about 42 miles northwest of Deer Lake. According to a 2016 census, on-Reserve population of Deer Lake, is 867. They did not participate in Treaty 5 adhesion signings around 1908-1910. Those adhesion signings to Treaty 5, were for land north of 57° north latitude, in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. They are not to be confused with Reindeer Lake Ojibway's from Manitoba and Saskatchewan.





Deer Lake

It is a smaller of their two settlements. It is over a mile southeast of North Deer Lake. This small community is located adjacent to Deer Lakes shores. Deer Lake may have up to 30 or more housing units. I don't know what their population is. Using google earth to count how many housing units are in Deer Lake is very difficult. Satellite images are blurry and probably quite old.



North Deer Lake

It is a larger of their two settlements. North Deer Lake is over a mile northwest of Deer Lake. Using google earth to count how many housing units are in Deer Lake is very difficult. Satellite images are blurry and probably quite old. I would estimate North Deer Lake has well over 100 housing units. North Deer Lake is located along Deer Lakes shores. I don't know what their population is.
