With this project, the Cree Nation of Wemindji wishes to develop a landfill site in Wemindji. Considering the fire that raged at the incinerator in the fall of 2018 and considering that the existing landfill, which has an estimated lifespan of 10 years, should be completed by the fall of 2020, the development of a new landfill site is a priority for the community. Although the community plans to replace the incinerator with a new facility by 2021, it is still necessary for the community to develop a new landfill before the winter of 2020.
