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.

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:
