​Little Jackfish

​Ontario Power Generation has proposed development of approximately 78 MW of renewable hydroelectric power through the construction of a generating station on the Little Jackfish River. With no existing hydroelectric development on the river, the proposed station will include a dam with a water intake and by-pass structure, a powerhouse and a tailrace channel. Associated facilities include access roads, borrow areas for construction materials and a large temporary construction camp. Transmission facilities to connect the proposed project to the provincial grid will also be required.

Project Status

The province's Long Term Energy Plan released in December 2013 has indicated that the energy that would be generated by the Little Jackfish River Hydroelectric Project is not needed in the near-term. Therefore, all Project activities are being put on hold.

Under the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Waterpower Projects, there are five different phases in the planning process. OPG is putting the Class EA process on hold in Phase 4 – Documentation.

Next Steps

This web page will be updated with more information when it is available.
