Welcome to the Saugeen Ojibway Nation Environment Office website

Our mission

To provide infrastructure and expertise for matters that affect the rights and interests of Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) and support the Joint Chiefs and Councils of SON in asserting jurisdiction across SON Territory.

The Environment Office & SON

Who we are

The Saugeen Anishnaabek have been living in our home on and near the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula for as long as our history remembers. Through our treaties with the Crown, we agreed to share part of our land with people who have come from all around the world. As Anishnaabek people, we are subject to Anishnaabe law and are ever mindful of our duty to be stewards of our land. The people of Saugeen Ojibway Nation established the Environment Office to make it easier for us to fulfill this duty.

 

For our community members, you will find this website can help you keep informed about the work that the Environment Office is doing, and stay in touch with our staff. Feel free to send us any questions or concerns you may have.

 

For those who are living or working in Saugeen Ojibway Nation Territory, this website provides a wealth of information on ways that SON is acting to protect our land. We encourage you to take advantage of the resources offered here to inform yourself of our policies, especially if you are planning on undertaking any kind of development project here that may impact our land, water, resources or culture. SON will drive the process of consultation, using our own criteria.

 

We look forward to working with you in a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship.

Our Territory

The Territory of Saugeen Ojibway Nation includes over 2 million acres in Southwestern Ontario, Canada as well as the surrounding lake bed. Both the lake bed and the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula are subject to an $80 billion land claim that is in the court as of Spring 2019.
