The partners will work together to obtain an Environmental Assessment Certificate from the province and an electricity purchase agreement from BC Hydro for this project, which could deliver power to the grid by late 2018.

The parties have agreed to a process to gather, document and preserve Saik'uz traditional knowledge.
