Alderville First Nation

Alderville First Nation

Alderville is a thriving First Nation community, rich in heritage and culture, situated on Rice Lake in southern Ontario, approximately 30 kilometres north of Cobourg. The community’s population consists of 1,131 registered Band members, with 325 citizens living on-reserve.

Approximately 60 members are employed by the First Nation, and many others are small business owners in and outside of the community.

The majority of homes in Alderville are privately owned by community members, in large part, due to the success of the Nation’s revolving housing loans program established in 1975. Working with the First Nations Market Housing Fund, Alderville plans to expand housing loan options for members to buy, build, or renovate existing homes in the community. Among its current housing portfolio, Alderville administers 98 mortgages and 26 Band rental units.

Alderville elects a Chief and four members of Council under the Indian Act, and is a member Nation of Ogemawahj Tribal Council, representing six Chippewa, Mississauga and Pottawatomi First Nations. Alderville is home to an impressive memorial honouring First Nation veterans, an ecology centre offering educational events and tours, and a successful 5.7 mw solar farm operation.

“Entering into the future for housing, the First Nations Market Housing Fund allows our members to plan ahead on family, and a home meeting their needs.”
Chief James Marsden (July 2015)
