An addition to Reserve (ATR) is a parcel of land that is added to the existing land base of a First Nation or is used to create a new reserve. The legal title to the land is set apart for the use and benefit of the First Nation making the application. Land can be added to reserve in rural or urban settings. The ATR Process was created by the Federal Government in 1972 and was revised in 2016. The ATR policy sets out the conditions and issues to be addressed before land can become reserve and attempts to balance the interests of all levels of government (First Nation, Federal, Provincial/Territorial and Local Government). The Policy was created to fill a legislative gap, as ATRs are not addressed in the Indian Act or other Federal Legislation.

Six Nations has acquired the following list of lands located near the Six Nations of the Grand River Reserve since the 1990s and these properties have been in the ATR process since that time. These lands are held in trust by local solicitors until the process is complete.
