Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Magnetawan No. 1 is an Indian reserve 6 km east of Georgian Bay, south of Sudbury, Ontario, with an area of 47 km, occupied by the Magnetawan First Nation, an Ojibway band. Its resident registered population is 70; 137 band members live off the reserve. In Canada, an Indian reserve (usually capitalized as Indian Reserve) is specified by the Indian Act as a "tract of land, the legal title to which is vested in Her Majesty, that has been set apart by Her Majesty for the use and benefit of a band." The Act also specifies that land reserved for the use and benefit of a band which is not vested in the Crown (for example, Wikwemikong Unceded Reserve on Manitoulin Island) is also subject to the Indian Act provisions governing reserves. Superficially a reserve is similar to an American Indian reservation, although the histories of the development of reserves and reservations are markedly different.show more
