Pituvik Landholding Corporation Pursues Development on Innavik Hydro Project

Over the past five years Pituvik Landholding Corporation has been working on the development of the Innavik Hydro Project of 7.5 MW capacity scheduled to be located on the Inukjuak River. The project comes as a result of the Inuit people community’s increased admiration to clean energy.

As per the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (JBNQA), the project site is likely to be situated on Category 1 land areas which are controlled by Pituvik Landholding Corporation.

On March 22–26, 2010, a formal vote on the project was conducted among the Inuit community people of Inukjuak. The results: 540 (83.2%) votes favored the project and 109 (17.8%) were opposed to the project.

Pituvik Landholding Corporation’s President Eric Atagotaaluk commented that an in-depth Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Feasibility Study on the Innavik Hydro Project have been completed and is found to be technically feasible.

The Innavik Hydro Project will supply sufficient energy to replace water heating and oil-based space. The Kativik Regional Government, the government of Canada, project partners and Pituvik Landholding Corporation will provide funds for the project.

Pituvik Landholding Corporation has entered into partnerships with engineering company Groupe RSW and clean energy advisor Lumos Energy for this project.
