        INTRODUCTION

        Economic History
      he Township of Ignace was established in 1879 when the Canadian Pacific

T     Railway was built through the area. Ignace was named by Sir Sandford
      Fleming after his Iroquois guide, Ignace Mentour. The Township became a
railway division point mid-way between Kenora and Fort William (Thunder Bay),
with marshaling and maintenance facilities, station, employee houses and
railroad YMCA.
The Township was incorporated in 1908 and continued as a railroad town for
another half-century. By the 1950’s, changes in rail transport forced the CPR to
begin cutting back operations in Ignace. The Trans-Canada Highway was built in
the late 1930’s, opening up the country for further development and new
opportunities including growth in the service sector and establishment of tourist
camps. The building of the Trans- Canada Pipeline through the Township in the
1950’s and the construction of Highway 599 in the 1960’s provided further stimulus
for growth within the community.
Persistent growth in Ignace occurred throughout the 1960’s as a result of
continued expansion of forestry operations and rapid development of mining
interests in the area. Along with the influx of miners and their families, the area
also became home for some 150 employees of Canadian Forest Products
Limited (the forerunner of Resolute Forest Products). This rapid increase in
population provided for substantial community development, including the
construction of over 100 new housing units, modern sewage and water
treatment facilities, a public elementary/secondary school, a French Catholic
elementary school, a recreation facility and numerous new businesses. Ignace
continued to flourish into the mid 1980’s until the downsizing and ultimate closure
of the mines in 1991, coupled with the downsizing of forestry jobs due to
mechanization.
Transportation plays a key role in the local economy given that the CP railway,
the Trans-Canada Highway and the Trans-Canada Pipeline runs through the
Township. Tourism is a staple of the area’s economy with a number of fishing and
hunting resorts in the vicinity. The community is now promoting Highway 599 as
the best route to the ‘Ring of Fire’ mineral wealth in the far north and is a prime
candidate in the site selection process for a deep geologic repository for used

nuclear fuel. The Township continues to explore this possibility with the Nuclear
Waste Management Organization (NWMO) which is responsible for used nuclear
fuel.
The Township of Ignace is now focused on strengthening its local economy
through strategic approaches aimed at building the right capacity to
accommodate the right type of investments as it positions itself for long term
sustainable growth and development.

        Location
The Township of Ignace is located within the Kenora District of
Northwestern Ontario. It is located on the Trans-Canada Highway,
two and a half hours west of Thunder Bay, five and a half hours east
of Winnipeg. Highway 599, Ontario’s most northerly paved highway,
starts in Ignace, leading north to Savant Lake, Pickle Lake and
winter roads further north to many First Nations communities.

Ignace is conveniently located at the intersection of Highway 17 (Trans-Canada
Highway) and Secondary Highway 599, and on the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Within this ideal location, Ignace benefits from extensive transportation networks
of rail and roads, alongside pristine wilderness. For example, the Township is
located 230 kilometres from U.S. Customs and Border Protection – Fort Frances.

        Age Profile
                                               In 2017, the Township of Ignace had a
                                               diverse population profile. Approximately
                                               11% of the population was aged 14 years
                                               or younger. Moreover, 64% of the
                                               population in the Town of Ignace is within
                                               the “normal working age”: 15 to 64 years
                                               old.
                                               Township of Ignace has a slightly older
                                               population, relative to the province; the
                                               median age in the Township is 53,
                                               compared to 42 in Ontario, and the
                                               average age was 48 compared to the
                                               provincial figure of 42.

Over the last 10 years, the census population has seen the biggest decline in the
groups of persons aged 5 to 9 and persons aged 45-49. The largest growth in
population was in persons aged 60 to 69.

1 Refers to the relationship between a person's usual place of residence on Census Day and his or her usual place of residence
one year earlier. A person is classified as a non-mover if no difference exists. Otherwise, a person is classified as a mover and this
categorization is called Mobility status (1 year ago).
2 Non-movers are persons who, on Census Day, were living at the same address as the one at which they resided one year

earlier.
3 Movers are persons who, on Census Day, were living at a different address from the one at which they resided one year

earlier.
4 Non-migrants are movers who, on Census Day, were living at a different address, but in the same census subdivision (CSD) as

the one they lived in one year earlier.
5 Migrants are movers who, on Census Day, were residing in a different CSD one year earlier (internal migrants) or who were

living outside Canada one year earlier (external migrants).

        Water and Sewer
Ignace’s Water Treatment Plant was completed in 2009. Its water
source is Michel Lake, a headwater lake, located in the northern
part of the Township. The treatment system employs a membrane
filtration process that uses coagulation, ultrafiltration and
disinfection with sodium hypochlorite. The plant has the capacity to hold up to
two million litres of water in its reservoir, and it can produce up to 100 litres per
second of water to the municipality for residential and firefighting purposes. The
quality of the water is excellent.
The Ignace Water Pollution Control Plant is located adjacent to the Agimak
River. It is an extended aeration plant that uses aluminum sulphate for
phosphorous control and sodium hypochlorite for disinfection to protect the
environment.
