The Project Team
The Innavik Hydro Project is being made possible through a strong partnership between Inuit-owned, Pituvik Landholding Corporation and Quebec-based, Innergex Renewable Energy Inc.
The Innavik project was initiated in 2008 by the Pituvik Landholding Corporation, which remains the driving force behind the project for the benefit of Inukjuak. In 2014, Pituvik selected Innergex to be its partner in developing the project. Innergex brings its expertise in the development, financing, construction, and operation of renewable energy power facilities, along with its strong track record of successful partnerships with local communities.
The 50-50 partnership ensures that no decisions can be made without Pituvik's involvement and approval. It also means that Innergex must be committed to designing a secure, cost-effective project.
Incorporated January 30, 1979 Pituvik holds title to 521 sq. km. on lands classified as Category I. These lands are held by Pituvik on behalf of the Inukjuaqmiut beneficiaries of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (JBNQA). In this holding capacity Pituvik has the right to allow people and organizations to use these lands and for that use is allowed to charge compensation. We also maintain a beneficiary list on behalf of all Inukjuakmiut. Visit their website: click here.
Pituvik is supported by Lumos Energy in its efforts to transition the Inukjuak community to clean and renewable energy.
