Province and Anishinabek Nation Renew Commitments on Natural Resources


The Anishinabek Nation and Ontario are continuing to work together to strengthen collaboration on natural resource management.

Today at a meeting, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry Bill Mauro and Anishinabek Grand Council Chief Patrick Madahbee renewed a Letter of Commitment and signed the sixth multi-year Memorandum of Understanding regarding natural resources management issues including education, and enhanced elder and youth involvement.

These agreements signify Ontario’s continuing support of the long-standing and productive relationship with the Anishinabek Nation, largely through the Anishinabek Ontario Resource Management Council.

The Anishinabek Ontario Resource Management Council provides opportunities for increased information sharing and understanding between the Anishinabek Nation and the government with respect to cultures, governance and natural resources such as fish, wildlife and forestry.
The renewal of these agreements is one of many steps on Ontario’s journey of healing and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. It reflects the government’s commitment to work with Indigenous partners, creating a better future for everyone in the province.
