Our History

The United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising (UCCMM) Tribal Council is comprised of six First Nation communities on Manitoulin Island and highway 6. The Board of Directors of the UCCMM is represented by the Chief of each of the First Nations.

The UCCMM began development of a proposal to establish a regional police service for the member First Nations in the early 1990’s. At that time, the majority of First Nation police officers in the province of Ontario were employed by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) First Nations Policing program. Some of the UCCMM First Nations were provided policing services under this strategy, while other communities were serviced by the Ontario Provincial Police.

In 1995, the UCCM Anishnaabe Police Service was formally created via a tripartite policing agreement for its first term: October 1995 – November 1998. The Federal government, as represented by Public Safety Canada, provides funding to the UCCM Anishnaabe Police service at 52%. The Provincial government, as represented by the Ministry of the Solicitor General, provides funding at 48%.

These tripartite UCCM Policing Agreements are a result of the Federal government’s First Nation Policing Policy.

The Service is currently into its ninth tripartite policing agreement for the period of April 1, 2019 through to March 31, 2023.

The purpose of these Tripartite Agreements is to:

1.

Provide effective, efficient, and culturally appropriate policing services in a manner consistent with Anishnaabe values, languages, traditions, customs, and culture throughout the UCCM Anishnaabe Police Service Area;

2.

To affirm the roles and responsibilities and relationships between the parties in the tripartite policing agreements; and,

3.

To provide funding for the policing arrangements as negotiated.
