Community members came forth with complaints about the illegal leasing of lands to non-natives. In February 2012, Canada and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne concluded negotiations. In May of the same year, the community of Akwesasne voted on the proposed settlement agreement and accepted it. The settlement was approved by the Government of Canada in September 2012.

Ontario Power Generation Settlement

This settlement concerned the damages that were incurred with the development and construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project. Along with the removal of the Long Sault Rapids, the traditional territory of the Mohawks of Akwesasne was also affected, changing the way of life for the entire community. The settlement was agreed upon and finalized in 2008, allowing for a new relationship between both communities. Funds were placed in the Mohawks of Akwesasne Community Settlement Trust. The money is used annually to fund and support collective community projects and needs.
