Money Given For All-Water Route

The group working on an all-water route through northwestern Ontario has received some funding.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation is providing the Path of the Paddle Association with over $333-thousand to hire staff and continue the development of the route.

It proposed to link several rivers and lakes between the Manitoba border and Thunder Bay, connecting with Kenora, Dryden and Atikokan.

The Association is hoping to launch the 900-kilometre route in 2017.
