Keeyask Generation Project - Environmental Assessment and Licensing

The Keeyask Generation Project is a 695MW hydroelectric generating station presently being constructed at Gull Rapids on the lower Nelson River in northern Manitoba. The project is owned by the Keeyask Hydropower Limited Partnership, which is comprised of Manitoba Hydro and the four Keeyask Cree Nations (KCNs): Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, Fox Lake Cree Nation and York Factory First Nation. Under the terms of the Partnership agreement, Manitoba Hydro is managing the construction and operation of the station.

As a major hydroelectric development, Keeyask required licencing under Manitoba's The Environment Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. The project also required other approvals, including an Authorization under the federal Fisheries Act. In addition, Manitoba required that the project be subject to a hearing by the Clean Environment Commission.
