Environmental Impact Statement

An environmental impact statement (EIS) summary document (PDF, 1.5 MB) has been developed for the Manitoba–Minnesota Transmission Project. This document outlines the concerns heard throughout the environmental assessment process and how these concerns were addressed. For a full understanding of the project and the associated assessment and conclusions, please review the Environmental Impact Statement.

The EIS was submitted to Manitoba Sustainable Development for review in September 2015.

Regulatory approval

Development of the Manitoba–Minnesota Transmission Project requires a Class 3 Licence under The Environment Act (Manitoba).

In addition, authorization for the construction and operation of an international power line is required under the National Energy Board (NEB) Act and is subject to an environmental assessment under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.
