Algonquin communities are located in the general vicinity of: Ardoch, Bancroft, Golden Lake, Mattawa, North Bay, Ottawa, Sharbot Lake and Whitney.
The area described as the proposed settlement area in the ongoing Algonquin land claim discussions, as depicted on the map below, can generally be described as an area in eastern Ontario that includes the portion of the Ottawa River watershed located in Ontario which waters flow northward into the Ottawa River and some of the Mattawa River watershed.
More specifically, the boundaries of the proposed settlement area generally extends from North Bay northeasterly, incorporating a portion of the Mattawa River watershed, to the provincial boundary bisecting the Ottawa River, then follows the provincial boundary bisecting the Ottawa River east to the eastern limit of Ontario, and then south following the provincial boundary to the height of land defining the Ottawa River watershed in Ontario. The southern and western boundary of the proposed settlement area is largely based on the height of land which defines the Ottawa River watershed in Ontario.
The proposed settlement area boundary encompasses more than 90 per cent of Algonquin Park and stretches in a southeast direction to include Bancroft, Sharbot Lake, areas north of Kingston.
This general geographic outline of the proposed settlement area that is the subject of the Algonquin claim negotiations is not intended to be a legal description.
