Papineau Lake sits on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabeg.

We acknowledge that the Indigenous peoples have been stewards of this land since time immemorial and as such we treat the land, its plants, animals, stories, and people with honour and respect. Today this land is home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island, and we, as residents, cottagers, and visitors to Papineau lake acknowledge the shared opportunity to live, work, relax, and play within this beautiful territory.

As settlers, this recognition of the contributions and historic importance of Indigenous peoples must also be clearly and overtly connected to our commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities.

We are an active lake association

At Papineau Lake, we work hard to keep our lake clean and our community happy.

“Joining the PLCA has been my greatest decision since becoming a resident on the lake. It is incredible to keep up to date with my community while making a difference” – Lake resident
