Does Your Business Require Winter Road Financing?

Northern Ontario's winter road network connects remote First Nation communities to Ontario's highway or railway systems.  Historically, the winter road season has operated from mid-January until spring thaw, which usually occurs in late March.  However, in recent years the duration of the winter road season has been impacted by climate change and the window of opportunity for communities and businesses to transport inventory and supplies on the winter road is becoming increasingly smaller.  

To remain competitive and reduce inventory and supply costs, communities and businesses must be proactive and be prepared to begin transporting goods at the onset of the winter road season.  Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund may be able to assist by providing financing to cashflow these purchases.
