Where we work

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.
