Four Treaty 3 First Nations that formed a partnership, in response to the twinning of the Trans-Canada, are working with the province on understanding the potential impacts of the project, but their monthly newsletter doesn't offer any estimates for the start of construction on the project.

Shoal Lake 40, Wash Bay, Dalles and Rat Portage created the Four Winds partnership a year ago. Their October 2019 newsletter says the partners will be providing information, related to the potential impacts of the twinning, in what is described as a harmonized impact statement.

The Four Winds partnership will be working with MTO. Funding for the project was announced more than a decade ago.
