About 40 years ago, after the Québec government launched the La Grande complex project, Hydro-Québec created its environment department. Since then, the company has conducted a wealth of environmental studies covering topics such as aquatic environments, wildlife species and the human environment. These studies, research projects, methods and technologies have led to numerous publications, all available through our Environment & Communities Documentation Centre.

Environment & Communities Documentation Centre
For over 40 years, Hydro-Québec has contributed substantially to the advancement of environmental knowledge.
Its studies, research, innovative methods and technologies have been described in numerous publications.
The Environment & Communities Documentation Centre makes this knowledge available to you.
The Centre has more than 25,000 items in its collection, and some 10,000 of them deal with environmental studies and research written by or for Hydro-Québec. In addition to environmental impact assessments, there are specific studies on mitigation measures, environmental follow-up, some species of wildlife, and more.
