History

The Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation Community Trust was established as a result of a successful land claim settled between the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation and the Government of Canada.   The Land Claim was for a 200 Acre parcel of land along the banks of the Credit River in Mississauga, Ontario.  The original Credit River people were relocated to their current lands just outside of Hagersville, Ontario in 1854.  The settlement funds of $12.7 million were paid by Canada and the Trust Agreement between the MNCFN Chief and Council and an original seven Board of Trustees was brought into effect on April 10, 1997.  The Trust Agreement had been ratified by the membership of the MNCFN in a community vote held January 4, 1997.

The Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation are located near the town of Hagersville, Ontario, one half hour south of Hamilton and southeast of Brantford.  New Credit was the name given the community when they were relocated from the banks of the Credit River in Mississauga, Ontario.
