Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mississaugas of Scugog Island is an Indian reserve for the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation in south-central Ontario, Canada. It is located near Lake Scugog in Durham Region. According to the Canada 2001 Census: 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. Although the American term reservation is occasionally used, reserve is normally the standard term in Canada.show more
