The First Nation ratified the Final Settlement Agreement (FSA) on September 18, 2015 with the community overwhelmingly voting in favour of accepting the FSA.
On April 14, 2016, the Chippewas of Kettle & Stony Point celebrated a significant
milestone in the history of returning the Stony Point lands to the First Nation. It was
attended by many community members, Chiefs from around the area and the National Chief, as well as two Ministers that also signed the Final Settlement Agreement on behalf of Canada. It was a memorable event, one that signified not only the beginning of the
process of returning the lands at Stony Point to the First Nations, but also the hope for healing for those community members that have been affected by this.
The next stage after the agreement has been accepted and settled is the Implementation phase.

Property Management Agreement (PMA):
The PMA is under the administration of the First Nation. A ‘Memorandum of
Understanding’ was agreed upon in 2012 and was recently renewed for another 5 years. It comprises Standard Operating Procedures, which states that primarily the PMA manages and monitors access into the former Camp Ipperwash while also maintaining the grounds and roads.
Annual submissions to the DND for on-going funding are a requirement and managed by the Director of Negotiations for the First Nation. An agreement was reached to ensure a certain number of individuals were to be hired that reside at Stony Point. There are
currently 15 employees who are working in Stoney Point as gatehouse access,
maintenance or patrol workers.
