Once the colony of St-Paul-des-Métis was opened up for outside settlement by Father Thérien, in 1909, many homesteaders stood in line for hours to file a land claim. Some had travelled from as far away as Québec, while others had been squatting on land near the St-Paul-des-Métis settlement, awaiting the day they would be allowed to move into the area. Many of those settlers who filed before or after the 10th of April were Métis who had registered their land in March, or after the day the Land Office opened.
