Welcome to The Aroland First Nation – Official Website


Aroland First Nation is an Anishnawbe First Nation located 60 km north of Geraldton and 20 km west of Nakina on Hwy 643 in Northern Ontario, Canada.

Aroland First Nation is an organization which is dedicated to delivering and creating education, health, cultural, and economic opportunities for its members and conserving its traditional territory. Aroland has a strong connection to the land and has been a steward of the land since time immemorial. Prior to European contact, the ancestors of Aroland First Nation hunted and fished, as well as both cultivated and gathered vegetation from the land. The settlement of Aroland First Nation occurred circa 1900 by community members engaged in the fur trade with the Hudson’s Bay Company.
