The Georgina Island Storytelling Project

Our stories celebrate our heritage and identity as Chippewa people. They preserve and teach our Indigenous ways of knowing and knowledge for the future generations of Georgina Island. In the tradition of oral history over generations, our youth - in their turn - will carry on this legacy to protect and share our proud history and who we are as the Chippewas of Georgina Island.

The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario

As the Crown’s representative in Ontario, the Lieutenant Governor exercises constitutional powers and promotes a strong and positive civic community.

Her Honor visited Georgina Island in August to have  an informal discussion on our community.  Two of our honored elders, Susan Hoeg and Andrew Big Canoe, extended a warm welcome.

For more information on the Role that Her Honor plays in our society please visit the official link posted here.

 

Congratulations to Quinn Big Canoe and his team from Chief and Council  for winning the Gold in the World Junior Championships U18!
Quinn played for Team Canada and was an outstanding representative of our country.
 Quinn and his teammates travelled to Mount Pearl Glacier, Newfoundland to play in the 2018 ISBHF Junior World Championships.

We are very proud of Quinn and the sterling example he is to our young people!

It is expected that the water level in Lake Simcoe will continue to lower through next week.  However, the risk of flooding continues to exist in low-lying areas due to impacts of wind action, rain and continued high flows in the system.

 

The high lake levels will also continue to impact the dykes in the Polder areas.  Polders are low-lying lands adjacent to the Lake and are protected by dykes.

 

A summary of recent Lake Simcoe water levels can be found below:
