GIFL Location / Study Area
Georgina Island First Nation consists of five (5) separate land masses located near the southern shore of Lake Simcoe. The community has a total of 120 year round residential units and 444 seasonal residences located on the various islands of the community. The Fixed Link is planned to connect Georgina Island to the mainland. At the present time the final route for the Fixed Link has not been determined as many studies will be required to select the best option based on a number of variables still being identified by the community through consultation and evaluations. Obviously, cost and environmental impact will be high on that list, but other factors will be identified through a detailed and comprehensive engagement process. This information is very preliminary and will be updated as more and more research and evaluations are completed. At the present time, the following study area is being used for preliminary evaluations.
