First Nations Liaison Committee

Description & Actions

The communities that make up the Georgian Bay Association are located on the traditional territories of numerous First Nations many of whom have reserve lands along the Bay. These include:

  • Wiikwemkoong
  • Shawanaga
  • Wasauksing

Committee Mandate:

To be a conduit for communications with First Nations on issues of interest.


To seek awareness and understanding of First Nations’ perspectives on land, forest, fisheries and water issues and work to improve communications between GBA and its member associations on the one hand and First Nations bands on the other and to nurture collaborative guardianship efforts on facets of Georgian Bay of common concern
