Marten Falls Community Access Road Project — Participant Funding Available

September 17, 2019 — The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) is making funding available through its Participant Funding Program to assist the participation of the public and Indigenous groups in the federal impact assessment for the proposed Marten Falls Community Access Road Project, located in northern Ontario.

Funding is available for eligible individuals and groups to assist their participation in upcoming steps of the impact assessment, specifically for reviewing and providing comments on the draft Tailored Impact Statement Guidelines and the draft Public Participation Plan.

Applications received by October 8, 2019, will be considered.

The Agency will determine if a federal impact assessment is required for the project, and if one is required, recipients and the amount of funding allocated will be announced at a later date. If the Agency determines a federal impact assessment is not required, no funds will be allocated.

To apply for funding, contact the Participant Funding Program by writing to CEAA.FP-PAF.ACEE@canada.ca, or by calling 1-866-582-1884. The application form is available on the Agency's website at canada.ca/iaac under Funding Programs.

The Proposed Project

Marten Falls First Nation is proposing the construction and operation, including maintenance, of an all-season multi-use community access road approximately 140 to 250 kilometres in length, connecting the northern end of Painter Lake forestry road to the community of Marten Falls. Marten Falls is located at the junction of the Albany and Ogoki rivers, approximately 170 kilometres northeast of Nakina, Ontario. As proposed, the Marten Falls Community Access Road Project could enable future access to potential mineral development activities in the Ring of Fire area.

More information on this project is available on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry website, Registry reference number 80184.
