On April 10th, 2010, the Tribal Council along with over 500 members from its seven communities gathered on Victoria Island. The group then marched to Parliament Hill to present the map of their ancestral territory to the Federal government in Ottawa. The map presented to the Federal government was the result of research collected by each member community and is the territory occupied by the Algonquin Anishinabeg people before the arrival of the Europeans.
What the Tribal Council wants is to establish a sharing formula that allows First Nations to have the right to utilize and co-manage the resources on the territory and for the member communities to profit from these resources. Algonquin communities also require that the duty to consult and accommodate is respected when projects take place within the traditional territory.
