Wendigo Power Partnership Inc. (WPP) is proposing the construction of a hydroelectric generation station on the Larder River at Teddy’s Falls downstream of Wendigo Lake. The project site is located approximately 13 km northeast of Englehart, Ontario. This undertaking is being assessed under the Class Environmental Assessment for Waterpower Projects (April 2012) planning process.
Wendigo Power Partnership Inc. is wholly owned by the MoCreebec Council of the Cree First Nation.
At this time, the environmental assessment planning process leading up to the assessment of potential effects is ongoing. The project team is engaging with reviewing Ministries in advance of the final round of consultation prior to the issuance of the Notice of Completion. The Environmental Report documenting the results of the environmental assessment will be made available for review with the Notice of Completion.
Relevant project documents and contact information for the Project Coordinator can be found below.
In support of the environmental assessment of the Teddy’s Falls Waterpower Project Woodland Heritage Services Ltd will be conducting a Stage 2 archaeological assessment of the project area. The assessment and subsurface testing is planned for the week of October 29th.
As part of the environmental assessment planning process, the project description has been posted, with intention to introduce the initial project concept to form a basis for dialogue on regulatory approval requirements and facilitate public consultation and First Nation and Aboriginal engagement.
