About Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek First Nation

Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek: BNA’s reserve includes 984.6 hectares of land in what was the former Black Sands/Lake Nipigon Provincial Park. BNA’s reserve land is located on the eastern shore of Pijitiwabik Bay, which is in the southeastern shores of Lake Nipigon, approximately 50 km north of Highway 11/17. Both Hwy 11 and the former CN rail tracks have corridors through the reserve. While some BNA members live on-reserve seasonally, community members can be found in the neighbouring First Nation communities of Rocky Bay, Lake Helen, and Pays Plat, as well as in Beardmore, Thunder Bay, and in large and small municipalities across the country. BNA has a total membership of approximately 250 individuals, and currently maintains its office on Fort William First Nation, and its satellite office in Thunder Bay.
