Sachigo Lake First Nation
Sachigo Lake First Nation is located approximately 425 kilometers north of Sioux Lookout, Ontario and 150 kilometers west of Big Trout Lake, Ontario. Access to Sachigo Lake is provided by a year round airport which is operated by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and Communication. Regular air service is available to the regional centers of Sioux Lookout, Thunder Bay and Winnipeg. The Sachigo Lake airport, which was completed in 1980 is serviced by Wasaya Airways and is located approximately 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) north of the main community. Road access between the airport and Sachigo Lake is by a gravel, winter road.
For several years the community organizes and hosts the Sachigo Lake First Nation Ice Fishing Derby. The 9th annual derby was recently held on Feb. 25, 2012.
