Historical Notes

The Magnetawan First Nation  is within the boundaries of the territory described by the Robinson-Huron Treaty of 1850, as signed by Chief Pamiquonaishkung. The First Nation was first surveyed in 1853 and confirmed by Order-in-Council in January of 1853. In 1907, an additional tract of land in the Township of Wallbridge was added to the reserve to compensate for an error made in the 1853 survey.


The First Nation Administration Office accounts for half of the labour force (administration), and the remainder is concentrated in construction and non-government service industries. We now have Shwe Miikaan Corporation partnered with Henvey Inlet and Shawanaga is developing and providing labor opportunities and capacity building in the construction of the Hwy 69 / 400 expansion.
