Magnetawan, Henvey Inlet and Shawanaga team up to form construction company
Anthony Laforge, Director of Lands and Resources for Magnetawan First Nation says that their land code puts Magnetawan in the driver’s seat for the negotiation of the expansion of Highway 69 to four lanes.
Magnetawan First Nation has been in negotiations with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) in Ontario since 2013 over the four laning of Highway 69. In 2014, Magnetawan First Nation passed a Band Council Resolution to provide MTO with a route that would bisect the First Nation.
