Hydro-Québec’s projects and operations are part and parcel of Québec’s communities. Our facilities are closely interwoven with people’s daily lives and must be integrated as harmoniously as possible. Consequently, when carrying out a project, we maintain an ongoing dialogue with the host community to ascertain its concerns and expectations, while explaining our implementation constraints. This approach is designed to make our projects and operations socially acceptable.
Every year, over 100 projects undergo a public participation process. In the project development stage, we implement the host community information and consultation procedures and improve them as needed. This enables us to enhance projects and tailor them to local realities.
