TÉMISCAMING, MARCH 14 2024 – Onimiki Renewable Energy L.P. will hold a series of public information meetings from March 19 to 21, 2024, to provide an update on its hydroelectric project in Témiscamingue.

Many local citizens and organizations took part in a series of public information and consultation meetings in the summer and fall of 2022, where many questions and comments were taken into account. Comments were also received following the publication of the project notice in May 2023 in the registre des évaluations environnementales (environmental assessment register) of the ministère de l’Environnement, de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques, de la Faune et des Parcs

We are confident in our promising project that will benefit the First Nations and all the citizens of the MRC de Témiscamingue,” said David McLaren, President of Onimiki Renewable Energy L.P
