Chippewas of Nawash Land Use Plan
Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation are developing a Land Use Plan and Capital Infrastructure Plan for the community. Both plans will establish a vision for the future of our community and a path to get there. We have hired two consulting firms to support this project: Neegan Burnside Ltd and Shared Value Solutions.

What is the Land Use Plan?

The Land Use Plan will guide future planning on the surveyed reserve lands (#27 Neyaashiinigmiing), Cape Croker Hunting Grounds, and the 69-acre vacant parcel undergoing the Additions to Reserve process (Lots 61-63 Con 3E & Lots 61-62
Con 4 East, Neyaashiinigmiing). It will consider the environment, species at risk, areas used for cultural purposes that allow Neyaashiinigmiing to plan for future development while protecting what is important. The Land Use Plan is scheduled to be completed between December 2020 and November 2021.

Completed Community Engagement for the Land Use Plan

  • January 2021: Video release and virtual community meeting to introduce the project
  • Feburary 2021: Knowledge Holder interviews completed (7 total), and survey completed (40 responses)
  • March 2021: Focus group mapping sessions (4 sessions total)
  • June 2021: Second virtual community meeting to discuss issues and options for
    the plan
  • August 2021: Two in-person community meetings to discuss issues and options for the plan

What’s Next?

Our draft Land Use Plan is complete and available for you to review. We welcome you to review the draft by requesting an electronic or hard copy from Larissa Johnston and join us at one of our upcoming virtual focus groups (November 2 & 3) and open house (November 4). Both events are opportunities for community members to share feedback, ask questions and review the work that will guide the future of Neyaashiinigmiing as we finalize the Land Use Plan.

The second stage of this project, the Capital Infrastructure Plan, will be completed in 2022.


If you have questions about this project, would like to receive an electronic or hard copy of the Land Use Plan or want to register for an upcoming event, please reach out to Larissa Johnston at or 519-534-1689.
