Welcome to Wasausink Lands Inc!

Wasausink Lands Inc. oversees and manages 244 Lease Lots located on Wasauksing First Nation, Parry Island Reserve No.16. All 244 lots have a seasonal resident "cottage" located on the lot. The cottage belongs to the registered Lessee who 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 and in the heart of the 30,000 islands.

History of WLI Lease Lots

From the early 1970s, Wasausink Lands Inc. (WLI) has held a Lease Agreement with Her Majesty the Queen to manage and collect lease fees for 244 Lease Lots on Wasauksing First Nation (WFN) Parry Island Reserve No.16. On February 25, 2017, WFN passed their Lands Code which take effect June 1, 2017. All surrendered land on WFN has now been reverted back to WFN, including the land for the 244 Lease Lots. The Head Lease Agreement established between WLI and Her Majesty the Queen remains in effect until 2032 however, the agreement is now between WFN and WLI. Lease dollars are collected by WLI, 10% of the total fees collected are now sent directly to WFN instead of being held in trust by INAC (Indigenous & Northern Affairs Canada). The remainder of the fees are reinvested into infrastructure within the cottage lot subdivision with the permission of WFN and on programs for Wasauksing First Nation Community members on and off reserve.
