Marten Falls / Ogoki

Marten Falls First Nation (MFFN) is a remote First Nation community led by an elected Chief and Council, located in the Far North of Ontario at the junction of the Albany and Ogoki Rivers, approximately 170 km northeast of Nakina, Ontario and 430 km northeast of Thunder Bay.

The Community Access Road is a proposed all-season road that will connect MFFN to Ontario’s provincial highway network in the south, increasing access and helping foster economic development and improve quality of life for community members.

The Community Access Road is a separate project from the Northern Road Link project.

This 5000 sq. km. vast area in the far north of Ontario is equally valued for hosting one the largest intact peatlands remaining on the planet - the most effective terrestrial ecosystem for sequestering carbon and therefore one of our best defences against climate change - as well as for their, so far largely undeveloped, mineral deposits.
