Hydro-Québec's Commitment to the First Nations and the Inuit Nation


MONTRÉAL, Nov. 26, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Hydro-Québec has made a commitment to the First Nations and the Inuit Nation. In a declaration presented at the Grand Economic Circle of Indigenous People and Quebec, we reaffirmed our dedication to developing and strengthening our dialogue with the First Nations and the Inuit Nation so that, together, we can chart a path that leads to our common goals.

Québec's energy development will take place in cooperation with Indigenous peoples. "We have a shared history with the First Nations and the Inuit Nation, some of it positive and some of it painful," said Sophie Brochu, President and CEO of Hydro-Québec. "Today, we are looking to the future with commitments that recognize the vitality of Indigenous peoples."

In concrete terms, Hydro-Québec is announcing the following actions:

"We value the wisdom of the elders and the vibrancy of youth in Indigenous communities," said Ms. Brochu. "It is with the strength of men and women of all ages from these nations that we will work together on writing this new chapter."
