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 PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE
A Public Information Centre (PIC) is being held to provide interested parties an opportunity to learn about the EA study for the Project and review elements of the draft ToR. The PIC will consist of a presentation at 2:00 p.m. and at 6:00 p.m. followed by an informal dropin centre with display information about the Project. Project Team representatives will share information on proposed studies to be conducted, criteria and indicators for the evaluation of alternatives and project effects, preliminary route alternatives for the all-season road corridor, and future consultation activities and opportunities. Information gathered at the PIC will be used both to complete the ToR and to gather information toward completion of the EA. You are invited to attend the PIC, which has been scheduled as follows:
