ONIMIKI: A COMMUNITY PROJECT OF HYDROELECTRIC MINI-POWER PLANTS TO REVITALIZE THE ECONOMY OF TÉMISCAMINGUE!


The Onimiki project is a partnership between the MRC of Témiscamingue and the First Nations of Kebaowek and Wolf Lake. It adheres to the highest standards of environmental protection and social acceptability and is part of the 2018-2022 Témiscamingue’s strategic plan.

The construction and operation of the two mini-power plants will incorporate state-of-the-art technology and generate more than 200 jobs in the region over a two-year span. An independent evaluation estimated that the project will produce net incomes of $1,880 M for the First Nations and the MRC within the first year.
