Kivalliq Hydro-Fibre Link

Project Name: Kivalliq Hydro-Fibre Link

Partners: Kivalliq Inuit Association, Sakku Investments Corporation, Anbaric Development Partners and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan

Location: Nunavut and Manitoba

Sector: Green and Broadband Infrastructure

Commitment: Memorandum of Understanding

Description: The proposed Kivalliq Hydro-Fibre Link involves the construction of a new 1,200-kilometre, 150-megawatt transmission line to Nunavut from Manitoba. This project would bring renewable, sustainable and reliable hydroelectricity to modernize electricity systems and potentially reduce reliance on diesel power generation while supporting the economic interest of Indigenous Peoples in remote communities.

Fibreoptic cabling is included in the project. This would bring broadband connectivity to the region for the first time, enhancing telecommunications services for residents, businesses and for public service delivery.

The long-term benefits would include substantial infrastructure for transmission and fibreoptic cabling to deliver reliable electricity and broadband services, which is crucial for advancing the economy.

Benefits of the CIB Involvement:

The CIB will advise on the development of the Kivalliq Hydro-Fibre Link by the Kivalliq Inuit Association, Sakku Investments Corporation, Anbaric Development Partners and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, which includes comprehensive commercial appraisal and financial modelling.
