The Madison Reserve was acquired in 2006 by the Long Plain First Nation Trust from Manitoba Hydro. The land acquisition is in part a fulfilment of Canada’s outstanding treaty land entitlement to Long Plain First Nation (1994).
On July 2010, Long Plain and the City of Winnipeg executed a municipal services & development agreement, setting the stage for the development of the 3 acre parcel.
On May 23, 2013 the property was set aside as a reserve.
The reserve is located near Polo Park shopping complex in Winnipeg. Bounded by St. Matthews Avenue on the north, Madison Street on the west, Silver Avenue on the south and Kensington Street on the east, the developed land is 3 acres.
