Teachers, download the information sheet (PDF) for ideas on how you can use the map to compliment your curriculum.


Indigenous trail markers on the TransCanada trail

Some of these markers tell stories that date back as far as the 1300s and recount Indigenous people’s agricultural, economic and cultural history. You can visit them in person or online through our interactive map. The page includes the full text of each marker and information on the Niagara Treaty.​


Treaties in Ontario (info graphic) shows the number of treaties in Ontario, the regions they cover and the populations within treaty areas. The info graphic also includes information about Indigenous populations. It’s a great resource for educators, or anyone interested in learning more about these agreements.
