McLeod Lake Band Membership totals 464 members (as defined under the Indian Act) with approximately 86 members living in McLeod Lake, 15 members living in Bear Lake, 150 members living in Mackenzie and Prince George, and the rest throughout North America. New Indian Reserves are being established in Mackenzie and Bear Lake as provisions of the Treaty 8 Adhesion Agreement. As these reserves are developed and housing constructed, it is expected that more band members will move back to Indian Reserve lands."1
