Robinson-Huron and Robinson-Superior Treaties (1850)

The Robinson-Huron and Robinson-Superior Treaties

In 1850, two treaties were negotiated and signed for the north shores of Lakes Superior and Huron. Part of the early northern expansion of what would become Ontario, the Robinson Treaties opened the area's natural resources to initial exploration and exploitation. The Robinson Treaties also became a loose model for the future Numbered Treaties in Western Canada.
