Still working on it

Were not out of the woods yet! There is a lot of hard work with long days ahead before all of the fires are under control. The MNR is working closely with local resource managers, Emergency Management Ontario and First Nations communities in planning a safe and speedy return. On Friday, flights were scheduled to bring about 571 residents back to Sandy Lake and Cat Lake First Nations. To date, 882 evacuees are back in their home communities and approximately 2,700 residents have yet to return.
