2010-2011 Winter Roads Program

This year, 30 First Nations organizations and the Town of Moosonee will build a total of 3,021 kilometres of winter roads to connect their communities to a permanent highway or railway system.

The government's investment of $4.5 million in 2010-11 in the Far North's winter roads network is critical for lowering transportation costs and providing alternative access during the winter.
