The Wuskwatim Generating Station was developed by Wuskwatim Power Limited Partnership (WPLP), a legal entity involving Manitoba Hydro and the Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN).
Manitoba Hydro provides ongoing management and operations services to WPLP in accordance with the Project Development Agreement (PDA) signed in June 2006.
This marked the first time a First Nation and Manitoba Hydro have entered into a formal partnership to develop and operate a hydroelectric project.
