Wasauksing votes YES to their Community Land Code!
On February 25th, 2017, Ontario’s Wasauksing First Nation voted undeniably in favour of their community Land Code. Under their Land Code, Wasauksing First Nation will be able to manage their own land, resources and environment per their community developed land code, laws and policies. This is an incredible step forward for the community, as it becomes the 69th First Nation in Canada to regain lands governance authority under the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management. Wasauksing can now move ahead at the speed of business, protecting their lands and resources in keeping with the wishes of the community. Congratulations Wasausking!
