WINNIPEG - Arctic Gateway in Churchill has lost its corporate backers.
Fairfax and AGT Foods have given up their 50 per cent share in the group.
But the owners of the community's railway and port say it's better to have northern Manitobans in full control.
In 2018, the federal government helped to transfer the railway and port from Omnitrax to the Arctic Gateway consortium.
Arctic Gateway was launched by First Nations and town councils served by the railway which was washed out in 2017 and required costly repairs.
