Over the years New Economy Development Group has worked on a wide range of projects with many different clients. The current portfolio is broken down into four primary areas:
Project: Central Corridor Energy Group (CCEG) Project Management Office/Environmental Assessment Services
Client: Central Corridor Energy Group
Location: Northwestern Ontario
Year: 2012 – Present
Twenty First Nation communities are working together to reinforce the existing regional transmission service and also bring a new transmission line to 16 remote First Nation communities currently operating on expensive diesel generators in Northwestern Ontario. The Wataynikaneyap Power project will significantly improve social/living conditions and promote economic development in these remote First Nation communities, and is a unique ownership model enabling responsible development, capacity building, and benefits to First Nations communities in their traditional homelands. New Economy was contracted in 2012 by the Central Energy Corridor Group (CCEG) to be the Project Management Office and to provide project management, corporate governance, economic development, community engagement and environmental assessment expertise to facilitate the initiation of the project. With the selection of an experienced development partner in the fall of 2013 New Economy’s project management role was completed. New Economy has however continued to provide environmental assessment (EA) and community engagement services to CCEG for the Phase 1 Individual EA and related environmental planning. The capital cost of the entire project is approximately $1 billion.
