The Hydro Province

Providing continuous, reliable, and economical electricity for the people of the province is Manitoba Hydro's mandate. The utility is also responsible for determining Manitoba's future electricity requirements and for designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating all the facilities needed to meet those requirements.

The electricity generated and distributed by Manitoba Hydro is produced by 17 generating stations, 15 of which are hydroelectric.

The affairs of Manitoba Hydro are administered by a Board appointed by the provincial cabinet. The Manitoba Hydro-Electric Board reports to the minister responsible for The Manitoba Hydro Act, who, in turn, reports to the Manitoba Legislative Assembly. In this manner, Manitoba Hydro is responsible to the people of the province through their elected representatives.
