'This is our land': Quebec Algonquin First Nation files title claim to downtown Ottawa
Move comes after Ontario Algonquins signed agreement-in-principle worth estimated $300M

In a move to block a treaty between the Algonquins of Ontario and the federal and Ontario governments, a group of Quebec Algonquins have filed an Aboriginal title claim for lands in downtown Ottawa, including Parliament Hill, the Supreme Court of Canada and Lebreton Flats.

The statement of claim, filed in Ontario Superior Court on Wednesday, says the Algonquin Anishinabe Nation — which encompasses several Quebec Algonquin communities — historically occupied the islands and land near the Ottawa River.

“We have brought this claim to the courts as a last resort — we are tired of being ignored by the Crown, and it is time for the Crown to address our Aboriginal title throughout Ottawa and the surrounding areas,” said Chief Jean-Guy Whiteduck of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg in Maniwaki, Que.

The move comes less than two months after the Algonquins of Ontario signed an agreement-in principle with the federal and Ontario governments that will eventually see roughly 36,000 square kilometres of land, including parts of the Ottawa Valley, signed over to the Indigenous people as part of a modern treaty.
