Waasigan Transmission Line Project Logo
Hydro One has been a part of Northwestern Ontario for more than 50 years. We live and work in the North and plan to continue powering the communities, homes and businesses for many more years to come.

This is why we are beginning work on a new high-voltage transmission line from Thunder Bay to Atikokan, and north to Dryden. This proposed line will bring increased capacity and reliability to the region and open the North to more development opportunities.

Hydro One has named the project the Waasigan Transmission Line; Waasigan is an Ojibwe word for “bringing power.”


The Waasigan Transmission Line Project study area is for a new double-circuit 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line between Lakehead Transformer Station (TS) in the Municipality of Shuniah and Mackenzie TS in the Town of Atikokan, and a new single-circuit 230 kV transmission line between Mackenzie TS and Dryden TS in the City of Dryden.

Public Consultation

We want to hear from the public to ensure our project delivers tangible benefits to local communities. We hosted a series of Public Information Centre (PIC) drop-ins along the proposed route from May 13-15, 2019 for interested parties to meet members of our project team, learn more about the Waasigan Transmission Line and provide feedback. See materials from the PICs below:
