About Wasausink Lands Inc.

Lighthouse
Welcome to Wasausink Lands Inc.

Wasausink Lands Inc. oversees and manages 244 Lease Lots located on Wasauksing First Nation (WFN) Parry Sound Reserve No.16. All 244 lots have a seasonal resident "cottage" located on the lot. The cottage belongs to the Registered Lessee(s) which is responsible to pay a yearly fee to lease the land for the cottage.

The cottage lots are along the north shore of the island known as the Cottage Subdivision. All cottages are on the water of Georgian Bay. Wasauksing First Nation is adjacent to the town of Parry Sound, ON in the heart of the 30,000 islands.

The Head Lease Agreement originally with her Majesty the Queen is now with Wasauksing First Nation and the Lease expires April 30, 2032. At this time, there is no negotiating to have the Lease extended.
