With its modern airport terminal, connections to all season roads and rail networks, Pickle Lake is recognized as a linchpin which links Ontario with the remote north and beyond. The town has long been a service and supply base for projects in the remote north of Ontario.
Pickle Lake is strategically positioned to play a pivotal role in the ongoing expansion and growth of Ontario’s natural resource based industries. As a major transportation and access point to the remote north and its many First Nation communities, the significant growth in exploration and mining in the region presents many opportunities for Pickle Lake to further develop its logistical support capacity.
There are also excellent business opportunities in the service industry, power generation, eco-tourism, tourism – hunting and fishing, or water bottling.
