Aboriginal communities continue to live on their territories and practise their cultural traditions.
The first European to visit this area was likely Étienne Brûlé, who at age less than 20, in 1610 was sent to live as an interpreter trainee with the Onontchataronon, an Algonquian people of the Ottawa River.
In October 2004, the Georgian Bay Littoral was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
Archeological records reveal an Aboriginal presence in the southern regions of the Canadian Shield dating from 11,000 years ago.
Brulé returned to the Arendarhonon the following year.
The shores and waterways of the Georgian Bay are the traditional domain of the Anishinaabeg First Nations peoples to the north and Huron-Petun (Wyandot) to the south.
The bay was thus a major Algonquian-Huron trade route.
