Economic Development

The Onimiki hydro-electric power plant project creates an important lever for economic development within the communities of Témiscamingue where the need to revitalize and diversify the economy and create good, well paying, long term jobs is vital.

The generated income will also be reinvested into the community to implement social development projects, like building elders residence for the First Nations and offering more resources to young people and elders.

  • The Onimiki project represents an investment of $190 M.
  • The construction will last two years and create more than 200 jobs in the region.
