The title, "Historic Treaties and Treaty First Nations in Canada" appears at the top of the page.

Underneath, written is: 366 of 617 First Nations are Treaty First Nations (59%). Below this statistic is a grey box with information stating: "Historic treaties are located in nine provinces and three territories, covering nearly 50% of Canada's land mass". On the right side is another fact: "Total Population of Treaty First Nations (2006): 619,020." Below this are graphic stick figures of women and men.

At the bottom is a large map of Canada identifying the locations of recognized treaties. Right above the map is a colour-coded legend. There is also a large circular sign that states "70 recognized treaties" and branches off to each treaty area on the map. Douglas Treaties (1850-1854) are located in British Columbia. Numbered Treaties (1871-1921) are across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Robinson Treaties (1850), Williams Treaties (1923), and Upper Canada Land Surrenders (1781-1862) are located mostly in Ontario. The maritime Peace and Friendship Treaties (1725-1779) were located across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Lastly, Peace and Neutrality Treaties (1701-1760) were not represented on the map. Underneath the map is a note stating: "As there is no defined geographic extend for the Peace and Neutrality Treaties, they cannot be represented on a map."
