Transportation

Connecting the North through improved & innovative transportation channels

Join this major two-day information and networking session.

Bringing all transport sectors together to build an intermodal hub to explore opportunities to service northern Canada’s remote communities.

Thompson, Hub of the North, is a city of 14,000 situated in the heart of northern Manitoba, an area of 440,000 sq. km. Most northern communities are Indigenous based and separated by large distances of wilderness. Many have no all-weather roads and are only accessible by airplanes or ice roads in winter. Transportation is a critical element to link First Nations communities together and provide economic and personal connections to the south. Supplying food, fuel, materials, health, and judicial services is extremely expensive. These factors hamper development and hinder a safe and secure quality of life for many.

The Thompson Chamber of Commerce will host the first NORTHERN TRANSPORTATION SYMPOSIUM to explore transportation challenges and opportunities to improve the benefits of sustainable growth, economic development, and seek better health and social parameters.
