Residents of the remote First Island island of North Ontario will begin to receive goods with scrap in the next year.

First Moose Cree Nation Signs a $ 2.5 Million ($ 1.5 Million) Merchant Deal to Deliver Medicines, Food and Mail from the Continental City of Moosonee.

Island Moose Factory is only available by boat in the summer, a cold in winter and a helicopter sometimes.

The service for induction of inductors will begin next spring, after one year of testing.

Drones will have a maximum payload of 5 kg (11 lb) for a distance of about 5 kilometers from the Moose River where there is no bridge linking the island with the nearest town.

"This may be a challenge for the transport of goods, especially at this time of year when the river is freezing," said Paul Shakassim, spokesman for the First People, before the BBC.

"We are trying to serve communities where there is no infrastructure where commodities are very difficult to obtain, and when you can get them, that's very, very expensive," said Dr Dode Delivery Canada (DDC) head Tony Di Benedetto, CBC.

Stan Capapsicht of My First Creece nation said that usually his community is among the last to accept technology, but now they are part of the future.

"The DDC delivery platform is a valuable solution for connecting remote communities and providing fast and efficient supplies that were never possible."

Mr Kapashesit also told the CBC that he hoped the initiative would help connect the local population of about 4,400 people and create a "railroad in the sky".
