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. The project would connect 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.
Funding is available for eligible individuals and groups to assist their participation in upcoming steps of the impact assessment, specifically 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.
