The Chippewas of Rama First Nation are under a state of emergency. It is urgent that Rama residents take steps to limit the number of people we come in contact with to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
On January 11, 2021, the province announced that Ontario would enter into a state of emergency on January 14th while also issuing a stay-at-home order to residents. The emergency order remains in effect for 28 days in Southern Ontario regions.
The Rama First Nation administration will remain open. The Government Offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. All other buildings remain closed. Many of our staff are working from home in order to reduce numbers and risk in the workplace. Please contact the individual or department before coming to the office to make an appointment or find out about protocols in place.
Continue safe practices to help reduce the spread
Limit your close contact to those people within your own household and maintain 2-metre physical distance from everyone else. We have to think of new and different ways to connect with each other in order to protect our community. Please refer to information from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
Be safe and well. Miigwech.
Throughout our history, the Chippewas of Rama First Nation have been known as a caring, sharing people. Our Chippewa territory has been called ‘the gathering place’ where travellers rested before continuing on their journey, where great meetings were held and important agreements signed. From the earliest of times, our people have been entrepreneurs, artisans, craftsmen, hunters and fishermen. We later operated as guides throughout the area for tourists, marketed crafts and produce.
We invite you to learn more about our community, whose pride in Ojibwe traditions and restoring traditional ecological knowledge are at the forefront of community visioning. This stands alongside progressive programs, economic development initiatives and member services.
