Written by Paul on May 17, 2018
The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke announced that 13.76 hectares or 34 acres – comprising Parcel E has been officially accepted by the Federal Government in a move that brings the land closer to returning to reserve status under full control and jurisdiction of the community. Parcel E was formerly held by the Ministère des transports du Quebec and is located at the end of the Old Chateauguay Road. It is part of the agreement to return 700 acres to Kahnawà:ke following the extension of Highway 30. Parcels A through D are located on the north side of Highway 30. In October 2017, Parcel D, consisting of nearly 225 acres located on the north side of Highway 30 adjacent to Chateauguay, was the first of the five designated parcels officially returned to reserve land status.
