Our Role & Mandate
To provide the infrastructure and expertise for environmental matters that affect the interests of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and assist the Chiefs and Councils of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation in asserting First Nation jurisdiction over the environment of the Traditional Territory.
We work with the Saugeen Ojibway Nation Joint Chiefs and Councils to serve the Saugeen Ojibway Nation people, encompassing the communities of Neyaashiinigmiing and Saugeen. Our office reports directly to Joint Council, but works closely with both Band Offices. Nuclear issues, quarries, and issues impacting our traditional land and waters are just a few examples of the areas our office is responsible for.
