Range and Training Area - Thunder Bay Region

The Department of National Defence proposes the construction and operation of a new Range and Training Area to provide a weapons marksmanship and training facility for the Canadian Army and Royal Canadian Navy Reserve personnel located in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The proposed parcel of land to be leased is a privately owned former timber land tract located approximately 15 km east of Upsala, Ontario. The establishment of a new Range and Training Area will require the construction of range facilities to support ongoing military training as follows: a small arms practice range with 15 firing lanes for weapons marksmanship training; administration buildings; training facilities such as a rappel tower and urban operations site and a parking lot area.
