    grid and look at ownership options The Wataynikaneyap Power project is designed to connect 15 remote First Nations communities resulting in nearly 1 billion in direct investment in Ontario s North Wataynikaneyap Power has been undertaking the project through a staged development process The first phase a 300 kilometre transmission line will reinforce electricity transmission into Pickle Lake including servicing the Musselwhite mine owned by Goldcorp The second phase will extend transmission north of Pickle Lake to service multiple First Nations communities The new transmission line would cost significantly less than continued diesel generation In fact the Ontario Power Authority has determined that diesel generation in remote communities costs three to 10 times that of the average price of power in Ontario The total diesel generation cost for remote communities in Ontario is about 68 million a year and results in health safety and environmental issues In addition many communities are constrained in their electricity capacity The basic services so many Canadians take for granted aren t available to us with the existing system said Kenequanash Some communities can t even hook up their new housing as well as essential services The project will also create substantial new economic development opportunities in Northern Ontario More than 1 200 construction related jobs and 60 long term career opportunities are anticipated Our goal has always been to create as many local economic opportunities for our communities as possible said Kenequanash We re currently developing training programs to prepare the local workforce for the construction period and for the long term as well Wataynikaneyap has initiated an Environmental Assessment on Phase I and expects to complete construction toPickle Lake by 2016 Phase 2 could begin connecting communities as early as 2017 The company is working with AECOM in association with PowerTel and Deutsche
