NCN Finally Completes Mystery Lake Additions to Reserve Land in Thompson

It is a reason for rejoicing, after nearly a decade of planning, negotiating and waiting came to fruition early this month. Chief Marcel Moody announced on May 20, 2016 that the Addition to Reserve of 4.21 acres of land at Mystery Lake Hotel Complex is finally complete. This now provides NCN the ability to administer and manage the lands where the hotel is located in Thompson.

The Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, set apart – for the use and benefit of the NCN – the Mystery Lake Parcel of land. The Addition to Reserve will allow for creation of an urban reserve. The land is located off the existing reserve lands, but is within NCN’s traditional territory and Treaty area. It currently consists of the NCN-owned Hotel, Trappers Tavern, and two vacant lots.

NCN continues to work with the city of Thompson through a Municipal Services Agreement to support the conversion of this land into an urban reserve. Read the Newsletter for the complete story.
