Draft offset plans

According to the National Energy Board (now the Canadian Energy Regulator) Certificate EC-059, Manitoba Hydro is obligated to:

  • submit a Wetland Offset Measures Plan, which outlines how permanent loss to wetlands resulting from the project will be offset or compensated for (condition #26);
  • file a Crown Land Offset Measures Plan (the Plan) with the Board for approval 30 days prior to commencing operations, which outlines how permanent loss of crown lands available for traditional use by Indigenous Peoples resulting from the project will be offset or compensated for (condition #22).

We are seeking input on the draft plans for meeting these conditions:

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 Conservation and Climate (formerly Manitoba Sustainable Development) for review in September 2015.

Regulatory approval

Federal and provincial regulatory approvals for the Project have been received.
