Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Treaty No. 9

HOW TO PLAY START GAME

 

Treaty No. 9 was an agreement established in July 1905, between the Government of Canada in the name of King Edward VII and various First Nations band governments in northern Ontario and was one of the Numbered Treaties. One First Nations community in the bordering Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec is included in this treaty. It was also known as the "James Bay Treaty," since the eastern end of the affected treaty territory was at the shore of James Bay. Additional signings of First Nations, or adhesions, were conducted in 1906. Further adhesions involving the Ojibway and Swampy Cree tribes were completed in 1929 and 1937.
