Henvey Inlet First Nation (HIFN) Band Council has developed an environmental stewardship framework to assess and regulate the Henvey Inlet Wind Energy Centre.  The Land Laws setting out this framework may be viewed here.

The Environmental Assessment (EA) requires a determination of environmental effects related to the construction, operation and eventual decommissioning of the Henvey Inlet Wind Energy Centre. Reports created for the Environmental Assessment permitting process will be uploaded here for public review when available.

Consultation with the Membership occurred in advance of the Band issuing an EA Permit. The Band obtained the authority to issue its own EA Permit under the First Nations Lands Management Act.
