Chapleau Ojibwe First Nation is a small, but thriving First Nation working towards creating prosperity for future generations through sustainable resource development and innovative businesses.

Currently the community, whose land base is outside Chapleau, has several buildings and homes near highway 101/129. Elder Therese Memegos recalled that Chapleau Ojibwe FN was moved three times before it was permanently established at its present location.

Originally the community was based on the shores of the Chapleau River. This first community had a large population, with several homes and buildings including an Anglican and Catholic Church. “There was a fairly large community on the shores of the Chapleau River. It had more people with several family names such as Cheese and Quakegesic, as well as Memegos. Just before I arrived to this area the community had declined. The younger people moved to other communities and only a few older people lived along the river. In time these elders passed away until there was only about nine members in the community,” said Elder Memegos.
