AltaLink, Canada’s only fully independent transmission provider, is responsible for the maintenance and operation of more than 13,000 kilometres of transmission lines and approximately 300 substations in Alberta. As Alberta’s largest supplier of safe and reliable transmission, AltaLink is moving forward to provide a transmission system that will continue to meet the growing needs of Albertans.
AltaLink recognizes the deep connections Aboriginal Peoples have to the land and traditional territories and respects the diversity of Aboriginal cultures.
AltaLink’s service area includes 18 First Nations Reserves and two Métis Settlements. We consult with Aboriginal communities on new transmission projects and on the maintenance of our existing facilities.
AltaLink believes that true collaboration and partnership with Aboriginal communities requires mutual respect, open dialogue and a willingness to listen and learn. We rely on community leaders and traditional land use practitioners to provide valuable information about sensitive features on the landscape. Learn more at www.altalink.ca.
