The Webequie Supply Road is a planned 107 km all season road running from Webequie First Nation’s airport to mineral exploration activities and the proposed mining development. The purpose of the Supply Road is to allow the community to benefit by helping the year-round movement of supplies, materials and people to mineral exploration activities and future mining developments from Webequie First Nation’s airport. Webequie First Nation is the proponent of this Supply Road Project.
This project is in the planning phase for the environmental assessment processes as well as preliminary engineering to determine what would be required to build the road such as the number and types of bridges and other water crossings. The purpose of this website is to share information. It contains presentations, fact sheets, newsletters and project schedules to make sure community members, their neighbours and the rest of the public are aware of what is happening on the project.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency must render a decision as to whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the Webequie Supply Road Project. In order to ensure this decision is a fully-informed one, CEAA is looking for comments from Indigenous groups and the public regarding the project and any potential environmental effects of the project. The document is available here via download, or, alternatively, can be accessed via the CEAA website:
CEAA invites comments on the project. Comments must be submitted by August 12, 2019. All comments received are considered public.
