Since 2012, the Robinson Huron Treaty Litigation Fund, representing the 21 Robinson Huron First Nations, has been in litigation with the governments of Ontario and Canada for failing to increase annuities payments as the resource revenue in the Treaty territory grew.
Today, we are happy to share that we have reached a proposed settlement to resolve claims related to past annuities – compensation that should have been paid for the past 170 years.
