2013-2014 Winter Roads Program

Twenty-eight First Nations and the Town of Moosonee are building 3,187 kilometres of winter roads across northern Ontario this season to connect their communities to a permanent highway or railway system.

Ontario's investment of $4.7 million for 2013-14 is helping lower transportation costs and provides alternative access when lakes and waterways are frozen.
