Project schedule

Hydro-Québec wishes to develop this project in cooperation with the communities concerned. The project schedule is intended to inform all stakeholders of what has been completed, what is currently underway and what is to come. Everyone is invited to speak with the project team during public participation sessions. The team will collect comments from participants in order to help better adapt the project to the surroundings.
