Ottawa, Ontario – A proposed all-weather roadway in Saskatchewan is moving closer to reality with an award of $20,000 by the Canadian  Environmental Assessment Agency. The funds, awarded to the Prince Albert Grand Council, support the council’s participation in the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Highway 905 project.

The funding is awarded through the Participant Funding Program administered by the federal agency and is being provided to assist the recipient’s participation in upcoming steps in the comprehensive study process.

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is proposing construction of an all-weather road from Stony Rapids to the south shore of Lake Athabasca to enable more efficient transportation of goods and services to Fond-du-Lac.
