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, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples – and the homeland of the Métis Nation. 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 remain committed to establishing and maintaining strong, mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous communities.

We are committed to working with Indigenous communities in a spirit of cooperation. We have implemented policies and principles to integrate strengthening Indigenous relationships into our top strategic goals.

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.
