Community engagement at Marten Falls First Nation

Get Involved

Marten Falls First Nation (MFFN) wants your input. We understand that good planning involves our neighbouring communities, and that better decisions are made when many perspectives are considered.

Your input will help shape the Marten Falls Community Access Road, confirming the route it will take, its design and the mitigation measures required to minimize environmental impacts. MFFN will discuss and gather feedback on all major components of the Environmental Assessment, including but not limited to the Terms of Reference, Project Description, results of baseline studies and proposed monitoring.
