A30 Lands formally returned to Reserve status

07/03/2018

The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that Canada has formally approved the return to Kahnawà:ke of the final three parcels of land comprising 173.19 as part of the Autoroute 30 bypass.

With Canada’s ‘Order in Council’ 2018-0866, Parcels A, B and E have been formally returned to Kahnawà:ke with full Reserve status. All five parcels, comprising 500 acres, have now been returned to Kahnawà:ke. A further 200 acres committed by Quebec will be identified for return at a later date.

Parcels A through D form a single continuous lot along the northwest side of A30, while Parcel E is located at the end of the Old Chateauguay Road.

For further clarity these lands are once again part of Kahnawà:ke proper, under the full jurisdiction of the community.

“While this is excellent news, we will now accelerate our efforts to address the issue of the remaining 200 acres with Quebec,” stated Grand Chief Joseph Tokwiro Norton.
