The Proposed Project:

Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek - Small Scale Waste Transfer Design and Construction: Work includes the construction of a small-scale waste transfer station, located approximately 3.5 km north of the turn off to the community of KZA Gull Bay First Nation on Highway 527. Gull Bay First Nation is located approximately 200 km north of Thunder Bay, Ontario (Site). Site is a former community farming area, now re-purposed for waste management planning.  There is an access road and historic clearing at the proposed site.
