Georgina Island Fixed Link Project

The Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation is proposing to construct and operate the Georgina Island Fixed Link Project, which consists of two permanent causeways, each with a continuous length of 500 to 1000 metres. As proposed, the causeways would be built in shallow water and would connect to each end of a new 1200 to 1500 metre-long bridge. Together, the causeways and the bridge would create a road connection spanning across Lake Simcoe from the southern end of Georgina Island to the mainland in Georgina, Ontario.
