Northern Corridor

Project Description

The Northern Corridor concept is about establishing a new multi-modal (road, rail, pipeline, electrical transmission and communication) transportation right-of-way through Canada’s north and near north. In initial concept, the Northern Corridor would be approximately 7000 km in length. It would largely follow the boreal forest in the northern part of the west, with a spur along the Mackenzie Valley, and then southeast from the Churchill area to northern Ontario and the “Ring of Fire” area; the corridor would then traverse northern Quebec to Labrador, with augmented ports. Note: Much of the corridor would be outside of Arctic Canada. Total estimated cost is $100 billion. To adjust for non-Arctic components, we take 15% of this number.
