Indigenous relations

Manitoba Hydro has a presence right across Manitoba – on Treaty 1, Treaty 2, Treaty 3, Treaty 4 and Treaty 5 lands – the original territories of the Anishinaabe, Anishininew, Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples and the homeland of the Red River Métis. We acknowledge these lands and pay our respects to the ancestors of these territories. The legacy of the past remains a strong influence on Manitoba Hydro’s relationships with Indigenous communities today, and we are committed to respecting and supporting Indigenous peoples in all aspects of our business.

We are committed to addressing the impacts of our projects and have entered into a range of agreements with Indigenous communities and organizations.

Our workplace should be representative of the communities where we live and work. Indigenous people are a growing component of Manitoba’s population and our customer base.

Significant contributions have been made towards a renewed relationship built on mutual respect, a committed understanding and more meaningful communication. We recognize that viable relationships and partnerships are fostered in an environment of mutual respect. We strive to understand and respect the social and economic views, values, traditions and aspirations of Indigenous peoples when deciding upon or taking action.
