As a next step, the Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required. If one is required, the public will have three more opportunities to comment on the project.

Projects subject to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 are assessed using a science-based approach.

The Proposed Project

AHP Development Corporation is proposing to construct and operate a 330-megawatt hydroelectric facility on the Peace River, approximately 15 kilometres upstream of Dunvegan, in northwestern Alberta. As proposed, the Amisk Hydroelectric Project would generate approximately 1,875 gigawatt hours of electricity per year. The proposed project would involve the construction and operation of a powerhouse, spillway, headpond, fish passage, boat passage, a connecting transmission line and substation, as well as access roads and other construction related components.
