The Proposed Road

The Northern Road Link would connect two all-season roads under development, the Marten Falls Community Access road and the Webequie Supply Road.

Project info

An agreement was announced in March 2020 between Marten Falls and Webequie First Nations and the Ontario government to proceed with the planning and development of the Northern Road Link. The proposed infrastructure project is considered to be critical to future economic development in the north.

Making the connection

The Northern Road Link, would link two proposed roads – the 200- kilometre. Marten Falls-to-Aroland Community Access Road at the south end, and the proposed 110-kilometre. Webequie Supply Road to the Ring of Fire at the north end.

In addition to opening the mineral zone to development, the government said the road would improve access to health and social services and provide infrastructure such as high-speed internet and reliable cellular service to numerous First Nations communities.
