Phase Two Of Shoal Lake 40 Road Construction Awarded

It was announced on January 30th that construction for the second phase of the Shoal Lake Band 40 all weather roads is set to begin.


Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler stated in a press release that residents of Shoal Lake Band 40 have been without an all weather road for more than a century and this project is overdue and will be transformational for the community and the people who call it home. Shoal Lake 40 is a First Nations community straddling the Ontario-Manitoba border and has a population of about 290 people.


Indigenous services minister Jane Philpot says the road will improve the well being of community members and is a long overdue step toward unlocking economic opportunities for the community and advanced reconciliation.


The road is expected to be completed later this year.
