Most residents of the reserve live in the community of Sahanatien.

The territory is home to the Iroquois Cranberry Growers, who produce a significant harvest every year and provide access to the public during the harvest.

"Wahta Gap"

Due to a land claim dispute with the provincial government, the Wahta Territory, formerly known as the Gibson Reserve, was the site of an eight-kilometre gap in Highway 400, where the roadway remained a two-lane highway for several years after the construction was completed further north. An agreement was reached in 2003, allowing freeway construction through the reserve lands. Construction began in 2004, and was completed in 2008.
