The potential impacts of Ring of Fire on the environment, animals and traditional way of life is one of the most important issues the communities of Webequie and Marten Falls have to deal with. The knowledge and guidance of the hunters, trappers, and land users are the key to lead the way for how the communities will deal with the proposed mining project. They want a deal that will protect them.
The ultimate plan for the communities within by the Ring of Fire region is to have their people "get up in the morning with a purpose" and have worked at the mine. The communities along with industry are preparing the people for training and employment programs in various areas relating to the mining sector.
There is no high school in the community of Marten Falls, so students have to move to the south to continue their education in the city of Thunder Bay. The challenges of the big city can take its toll, as students try to navigate through life away from home and get an education so they can qualify for those jobs at the Ring of Fire.
Basic health and social services are essential elements in any communities development. Webequie has an unemployment rate of 95%. Marten Falls has been on a boil water advisory for over 10 years, but their number one health issue is OxyCotin addiction that has devastated both communities.
