Terms of Reference for the Northern Road Link EA and Building a Made-in-Ontario Supply Chain for Innovative Technologies

This morning in Toronto, George Pirie, Minister of Mines, David Piccini, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks and Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development and Minister of Indigenous Affairs announced that our government has approved the Terms of Reference for the Northern Road Link.
