Throughout the length of the project’s development, construction, operational, and decommissioning phases, Natural Forces is committed to:

  • Continuous discussions with the local councilors, MLAs and business owners
  • Informing the public of the project's progress using this website, newsletters, public open houses and press releases.

At the public meeting October 9th 2014 held at the fire hall by Natural Forces, there was mention of a possible Community Liasion Committee (CLC) however due to a lack of interest the CLC will not be formed at this time. The formation of such a committtee may be revisited in the future if enough community interest is available.
