Some 40 lots of this territory were surrendered to companies and individuals, reducing the area of the reserve to a little more than 5,000 acres, many of these surrenders are now in dispute.
The Timiskaming First Nation Council consists of a Chief, Vice-Chief and five Councillors elected in accordance with the TFN custom electoral code.
