Each member community is a sovereign nation governed by its own Chief and Council, traditional laws and customs. Collectively, the London District Chiefs Council represents approximately 16,200 First Nations people from the London District Chiefs Council service region, spanning over approximately 25,800 acres of reserve land [not including the Specific Claim and traditional lands]. All members are located within a 100 km radius of London, Ontario.

The London District Chiefs Council main office is located on the lands of the original Anishinaabe peoples and is uniquely situated within the heart of the Lenape community of Delaware Nation – Moravians of the Thames First Nation. Eight federally recognized First Nations have their band councils in southwest Ontario and comprise full and partial membership in the LDCC.

The London District Chiefs Council has a vibrant history and proud legacy of co-collaboration among its founding members. True to its roots, today’s London District Chiefs Council continues its mission to help champion the voice of the people, the preservation and protection of inherent and treaty rights and the full inclusion and representation of its members in local, regional and national political decision-making processes.
