Colonization Road Renaming Process
The Town of Fort Frances is actively investigating a meaningful approach to the potential renaming of Colonization Road East and West within the community as a small step forward in our path to reconciliating past, present and future relationships with our neighboring Indigenous communities. The Town understands that entertaining such a change may generate a variety of impacts on all associated parties and is researching these potential impacts. The Town is also actively developing a street naming/renaming policy to develop a set of guidelines to ensure a consistent approach to assigning street names within the Town.

As the Town continues to work on a street naming/renaming policy, we will also work towards compiling supporting information and a list of considerations to be accounted for resulting from such potential changes. With this, the Town is seeking input from members of the public regarding the following:
• Any foreseen costs that may arise to property owners;
• Any potential address changes that may be required in addition to those outlined in the attached pamphlet; and
• Any other concerning impacts not related to address changes.
Input can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the following address, to be received no later than March 10, 2021:
