Who are we?



The traditional territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation takes in over 2 million acres in southwest Ontario, Canada and it includes the lake bed surround the territory. Both the lake bed and the Saukiing (Bruce) Peninsula are subject to an $80 billion land claim that is due in the court in the Spring of 2018.

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 the 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 our office is doing, and stay in touch with our staff.

For others, this website provides a wealth of information on ways that the Saugeen Ojibway Nation are 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 on our lands, waters, 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.
