On the Right Track is an engagement project on the Hudson Bay Railway from MKO in partnership with Transport Canada.

MKO will be visiting communities along the Hudson Bay Railway to hold engagement sessions to learn about the current significance, economic development opportunities, and future of the railway.

The engagement sessions will be an opportunity for leadership and community members to provide MKO and Transport Canada with their feedback on the Hudson Bay Railway. The MKO Chiefs in Assembly, through resolution, have provided their direction and support for MKO to participate in this community engagement project.

MKO and Transport Canada want to hear from you!

Attendance at the engagement sessions include a chance to win the door prize at the event attended, as well as a meal.
