WATAYNIKANEYAP TRANSMISSION PROJECT

 WATAYNIKANEYAP POWER

 Communique To Membership – August 4th, 2016

The Community of the Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation is pleased to announce that it has joined Wataynikaneyap Power, a partnership of 22 First Nations who have joined together with private sector companies FortisOntario and Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES) to build 1800 km of transmission lines in order to connect remote First Nation communities and reduce First Nation dependency on diesel fuel.

“As our membership is aware, in our determination and efforts to become a self-sustaining and progressively autonomous Community, we are forging ahead with various economic development projects and proposals,” said Chief White Cloud.

The LDMLFN continues to be actively involved in Economic Development opportunities within its Traditional Territories, including Forestry (Dallan Forestry LP); Mining (Agnico Eagle Resource Sharing Agreement); Energy (Jazz Solar Solutions), and is proactive in searching out any Economic Development projects or activities within our Traditional Territories.

“We, as your Chief and Council, believe that becoming financially independent is key to realizing our vision of a better future for our First Nation, for our children and for the generations to come,” stated Chief White Cloud.  “We look forward to working alongside these communities and standing strong together in our shared goals and vision of bettering the lives of our people and communities.”

March, 2018 Update

We now know that the Wataynikaneyap Power transmission line that will bring power to the Northern communities has been approved and will become a reality.  In our efforts to ensure that our First Nation and its membership are able to realize benefits from this partnership we have compiled information on Training and Job opportunities attached to this project.  We would request that anyone with an interest in the information provided please contact our Training Co-ordinator, Mark Berkan at markberkan@tbaytel.net or by phone at 807-622-9835.
