Project Overview

The Wataynikaneyap Power Transmission Project is an unprecedented First Nations-owned project to build 1,600 kilometres of transmission lines in Northwestern Ontario to connect remote First Nations communities to the Ontario power grid.

The project will reinforce the existing transmission grid to Pickle Lake and will expand grid service north of Pickle Lake and Red Lake to connect 15 First Nations communities. Valard was selected to design, procure materials and equipment for, and build the 1,600 kilometres of transmission and distribution lines.
