The Waterpower Working Group is co-chaired by the Ontario Waterpower Association (OWA) and Fox High Impact Consulting.
This group was established in 2004 to:
- Provide advice and assistance to Government with respect to the Waterpower Site Release and Development Review Policy;
- Foster collaboration and cooperation between Aboriginal communities, Government and Industry with regard to the development of new waterpower sites in Ontario;
- Raise awareness and understanding of the value of waterpower production in achieving Ontario’s renewable energy targets; and
- Work in collaboration to build capacity within the waterpower working group partners and among those who have an interest in participating in the development of waterpower opportunities.
The Waterpower Working Group includes representation from Aboriginal organizations, the provincial government, the federal government and industry.
The group has worked on several initiatives designed to assist Aboriginal communities in becoming partners in, or proponents of, waterpower development opportunities.
