The community of Manitouwadge initiated its area's involvement in the site selection process by formally expressing interest in learning about the project in 2012. With the involvement of Manitouwadge, we are reaching out to other communities in the area to be involved in the process.
The project will only move forward in any area with interested communities, along with First Nation, Métis and surrounding communities, working together to implement it. We are committed to respecting the Aboriginal rights and treaties of Aboriginal peoples. We also recognize there may be unresolved claims between Aboriginal communities and the Crown to be taken into account in relation to a proposed site.
