Far North route, better rural connectivity makes Ontario Real Estate Association’s top infrastructure to-do list

The Ring of Fire and its would-be road made the Ontario Real Estate Association’s (OREA) Top 10 list of “game-changing” infrastructure projects in the province.

A Strategic Transportation Link to Ontario’s Ring of Fire ranked eighth behind a raft of transit and rail projects in the Greater Toronto Area, eastern and southwestern Ontario.

OREA called the Far North exploration camp, Canada’s “largest known source of untapped mineral wealth,” but it faces huge logistical challenge to reach the stranded nickel, chromite and base metal deposits due to the area’s remoteness.
