After 17 years of legal battles and intense negotiations, the seven (7) Treaty One First Nations signed a historical settlement agreement concerning the former Kapyong Barracks lands with the Federal government. Partners Brenda Johnston and Kris Saxberg of Cochrane Saxberg acted for Brokenhead Ojibway Nation (“BON”) and Peguis First Nation (“PFN”), two of the seven Treaty One First Nations. The Kapyong lands will become one of the largest Urban Economic Development Zones (Reserve) in Canada. It is expected that the Kapyong Reserve will produce unprecedented economic benefits to the Treaty One First Nations, Indigenous people and Winnipeg.
Cochrane Saxberg would like to give thanks to Chief Glenn Hudson and Council Members and Chief Deborah Smith and Council Members for allowing us the honour of assisting in this historic land settlement claim.
