Amisk Hydroelectric Project
Dunvegan, AB

February 12, 2016 — The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change has referred the environmental assessment of the proposed Amisk Hydroelectric Project in Alberta to an independent review panel under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency will make funding available to assist the participation of public and Aboriginal groups in the environmental assessment process.

AHP Development Corporation is proposing to construct and operate a 330-megawatt hydroelectric facility on the Peace River, approximately 15 km upstream of Dunvegan, in northwestern Alberta. The Amisk Hydroelectric Project would generate approximately 1,875 gigawatt hours of electricity per year. The 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.
