Kashechewan First Nation is located on the west coast of James Bay. The community is situated along the Albany River and surrounded by dykes for protection against spring flooding. The population of the community is approximately 1700 people and counting.
There are two schools on the First Nation, St. Andrews Elementary which houses 400 students and the high school, Francine J. Wesley, which has approximately 180 students.
The only way into the community is by way of boat or plane during the fall, spring and summer. In the winter, a winter road is opened so that vehicles can travel to the neighboring communities of Fort Albany, Attawapiskat, and Moosonee/Moose Factory.
Hunting, fishing and outdoor activities are still very important to the people and to the food sources of many families.
