The York Factory Keeyask Implementation office maintains this website for use by YFFN members. It provides information about current and future hydroelectric developments on the Nelson River and YFFN’s consultations and negotiations with Manitoba Hydro.
The site currently focuses on the Keeyask Generation Project at Gull Rapids on the Nelson River and the Keeyask Infrastructure Project (KIP), which is the access road from the PR 280 to the potential Keeyask Generating Station. For the Keeyask Project, YFFN has partnered with Manitoba Hydro and three First Nations (Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, and Fox Lake Cree Nation) to form the Keeyask Hydropower Limited Partnership.
