Algonquin Tribunal

The Algonquin Negotiation Representatives (ANRs) have requested that the Algonquin Tribunal consider whether certain historic persons should remain on, or be removed from, the Schedule of Algonquin Ancestors.

The Algonquins of Ontario and the governments of Canada and Ontario are continuing their efforts to negotiate a modern-day treaty for the benefit of Aboriginal rights-bearing Algonquins.

It is essential that the AOO be representative of, and take instructions from, Aboriginal rights-bearing Algonquins and that only rights-bearing Algonquins be eligible to ratify and benefit from the Treaty.

Important Upcoming Hearings

Hearings on the eligibility of identified Algonquin Ancestors are scheduled for December 12-14, 2022. The hearings will take place in the Copeland Room, at the Best Western Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre, located at 1 International Drive, Pembroke Ontario, K8A 6W5.

If you intend to make submissions at the hearing, we ask that you kindly confirm by emailing the Tribunal at tribunal@tanakiwin.com with a brief description of your intended submission by December 2, 2022.

If you are unable to attend the hearing in person and wish to make submissions on a virtual platform or by phone, please email the Tribunal at tribunal@tanakiwin.com to make alternative arrangements by December 2, 2022.
