Engaging local and Indigenous communities, and, other potential stakeholders is a fundamental consideration in all the communities Bawitik Power serves, or, where it seeks a presence.

The Lock 25 Generating Station Large Renewable Project has been developed in direct response to a multi-phase process developed by Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) under the direction of the Ontario government.

Having been selected as one of six Qualified Applicants under IESO’s prequalification process to provide up to 75 MW of waterpower, Bawitik Power Corporation is seeking to comply with the IESO’s LRP I RFP project community engagement requirements for its Lock 25 Generating Station, which include distributing various forms of public notice, holding community meetings, and, enabling access to developing project information via a project website.

In keeping with this commitment to community engagement, Bawitik Power is reaching out to the Williams Treaties First Nations and the Métis Nation of Ontario to inform them of this project, and, to solicit their comments and concerns.

The list of links below reflects some of Bawitik Power’s efforts to date to engage the Lock 25 Generating Station project’s potentially affected communities.  It will be updated, when and as appropriate, as the project’s development review proceeds.
