Public Notice: Fort William First Nation Industrial Land Design Study

Press Release

Fort William First Nation (FWFN) has partnered with the City of Thunder Bay through the Community Economic Development Initiative (CEDI) program to undertake a strategic engineering study that will create a plan to develop 1,100 acres of First Nation owned lands. These lands, known as the Fort William First Nation Development Lands (formerly referred to as the Grand Trunk Pacific Lands). The development of this land is an effort to improve economic prosperity of municipalities and First Nations through joint community economic development.

The main goal of this Design Study was to develop options that maximize land use and generate return on investment, while promoting environmentally safe and culturally sensitive development. The Study will determine the opportunities and constraints for development and determine what infrastructure is required to support the plan along with estimated construction costs and phasing plan. Fort William First Nation engaged the engineering firm Englobe (formerly DST), in association with Urban Surface, to complete the design study.

Members of the community are invited to attend a public presentation on November 7, 2022 to hear the results and recommendations of the Design Study and ask question to the Design Team. Dinner will be provided, followed by the presentation.

Presentation Date: November 7, 2022
Presentation Time: Dinner at 5:00pm followed by the Presentation at 6:00pm
Presentation Location: Fort William First Nation Community Centre
