TOWNSHIP OF IGNACE, ONTARIO
The Township of Ignace has a population of 1,250 and is strategically located along the TransCanada Highway and the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Township is approximately 250 km northwest of Thunder Bay, 110 km southeast of Dryden, and 450 km east of Winnipeg.
Ignace is situated in the heart of Ontario’s “Sunset Country”, and is the starting point of Ontario’s most northerly highway, Highway 599, which provides access to a number of municipalities and a large number of First Nation communities and access to the Ring of Fire, a mineral-rich area in northern Ontario.
The Township is preparing for future economic opportunities associated with potential access to the ‘Ring of Fire’ and the Township is a candidate for a deep geologic repository for used nuclear fuel.
