Please be advised that the M’Chigeeng First Nation Leadership team is diligently working behind the scenes in response to the incident that occurred on Tikmeg Road from June 3rd into the early morning of June 4th, 2024.

We are pleased to inform the community that there is no longer any immediate threat as the individual involved is now in custody, thanks to the successful efforts of our UCCM Police, OPP Crisis Negotiators, and the Tactical Unit.

The housing complex at 36 Tikmeg Road will remain under police custody until further notice. If tenants have urgent needs related to property, medication, or pets, the UCCM Police can arrange for the transfer of these items.

We understand the importance of addressing all concerns and promoting a sense of safety and wellbeing. Therefore, the M’Chigeeng Community Complex will be open starting at 10:00 AM on June 4th, 2024, to offer the following services:

  1. Food Provisions
  2. Crisis Intervention
  3. Safe House for those in need
  4. Mental Health support for open discussion and connection
  5. A fire will be lit

Transportation is available for those in need. Please call the Health Centre for assistance at 705-377-5347.

Finally, to provide an update on community safety, we are meeting with the Community Safety and Well-Being Planner/Security Lead – ISN Maskwa. Please stay tuned for further information.
