    A Proposal for the St. Joseph Wind Energy Project has been filed by St. Joseph Wind Farm Inc. for the construction and operation of a 300 megawatt (MW of net electrical generation capacity) commercial wind energy facility.

The Project area overlaps the Rural Municipalities of Rhineland and Montcalm in the vicinity of the town of St. Joseph approximately 85 km south of Winnipeg. Up to 200 wind turbine generators are proposed to be installed over an area of approximately 215 sq. km of land. An Environmental Impact Study Report has been filed in support of the Environment Act Proposal. Construction is tentatively targeted to begin in 2009, with operation anticipated to commence in 2011.

    Anyone likely to be affected by the above operation and who wishes to make a representation either for or against the proposal should contact the Department, in writing or by e-mail (, not later than September 12, 2008.
