The Aamjiwnaang and Bkejwanong First Nations have jointly entered into a 50/50 partnership with Northland Power Inc., a Canadian independent power producer, to develop the 100 MW Grand Bend Wind Farm project.

The Grand Bend Wind Farm, located near Grand Bend, Ontario, will include up to 48 2.3 MW Siemens turbines. The Ontario Power Authority has awarded the wind project a 20-year contract under the province's feed-in tariff (FIT) for renewable energy.

"Northland's partnership with the Aamjiwnaang and Bkejwanong First Nations reflects our shared commitment to sustainability," says Northland CEO John Brace. "We're working together to create a stronger future - economically and environmentally. Thanks to the Ontario government for making such partnerships possible through incentives in the FIT and Aboriginal Loan Guarantee Programs. And thanks to our partners - we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial collaboration."
