Why is a Community Access Road needed?

  • Marten Falls First Nation needs a connection to Ontario’s provincialhighway network in the south to provide year round access; only airtransport is reliable in the winter.
  • Better access would allow:
    • Reduced transportation costs for goods and services; meaning more affordable food, fuel and other vital supplies and services;
    • Enhanced access to emergency, health and social services;
    • Increased opportunity for training and jobs for First Nation people and businesses during planning and construction; and
    • Increased opportunity for local sustainable economic development.
