The York Factory Future Development office maintains this website for use by YFFN members. It provides information about current and future hydroelectric developments on the Nelson River and YFFN’s consultations and negotiations with Manitoba Hydro.
The site currently focuses on the proposed Keeyask Generation Project at Gull Rapids on the Nelson River and the Keeyask Infrastructure Project (KIP), which is the access road from the PR 280 to the potential Keeyask Generating Station. For the Keeyask Project, YFFN has partnered with Manitoba Hydro and three First Nations (Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, and Fox Lake Cree Nation) to form the Keeyask Hydropower Limited Partnership.
On September 26th, the CEC Panel will visit York Landing and hold a community hearing at the George Saunders Memorial School starting at 1:00 pm.
All community members are welcome to attend and share their thoughts and concerns to the Panel. Speakers may want to share their personal knowledge, views and concerns about the proposed project to the Panel. Speakers are asked to limit their presentation to a maximum of 15 minutes. Presenters may get less time if there are many individuals who want to speak.
The hearings will be recorded and a written record (or transcript) of what is said each day will be posted on the CEC’s website as soon as possible after the community hearing.
Community members can also provide a written submission to the Panel if they cannot attend the community hearing or don’t feel comfortable speaking in public. Written submissions can be sent to the CEC Panel as a letter (Clean Environmental Commission, 305-155 Calton St., Winnipeg, MB, R3C 3H8) or an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
