In December, 2007, its total registered population was 206, of which the on-reserve population was 72.
The Ojibway Nation of Saugeen's landbase consists of a 5986 ha Ojibway Nation of Saugeen Indian Reserve.
Saugeen is governed by Chief Edward Machimity and three councillors: Eileen Keesic, Gladys Oombash and John Sapay. Though a signatory to Treaty 3, Saugeen is not a member of the Grand Council of Treaty 3. At one time Saugeen was member of the Windigo First Nations Council and the Nishnawbe Aski Nation, but withdrew from their memberships in 1995. Ever since, the council has been a politically independent First Nation and is not a member of any of the Regional Chiefs Council or their Tribal Political Organizations.
