Hydro Slave Falls Update – Engagement Summaries Now Available

Posted on: November 24, 2020  |  

Following the survey in September Manitoba Hydro shared the following information on November 24.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our engagement activities this summer, including two online surveys, on future projects at Slave Falls Generating Station. You are invited to review some of the key findings from our engagement in the reports linked below.

Potential for lower water levels at Slave Falls

In this survey, respondents weighed in on the impacts of a potential drop in the Winnipeg River that may be necessary to accommodate future work on concrete structures at Slave Falls.

Read our engagement summary: potential for lower water levels.

We are now developing a work plan based on our assessment of concrete structures at Slave Falls and feedback collected in our initial outreach and survey. An update on the work plan will be provided in spring 2021, as it will take time to develop.

New portage route coming spring 2021

In this survey, respondents were asked to provide feedback on the proposed new portage route at Slave Falls on the west side of the Winnipeg River. Two walking tours (in compliance with COVID-19 protocols) were also hosted for Indigenous communities engaged on the project.

Read our engagement summary: new portage route.

This feedback, along with input from our other studies, will help inform final routing and design of the new portage, which we will share more details on in the coming months.

We will continue to update you as our work plans for these two projects take shape. Please reach out to us at or 204-360-3505 if you have questions or concerns.
