Pointe Du Bois Generating Station

Pointe du Bois Generating Station is located on the Winnipeg River and the oldest power plant is still in operation in Manitoba’s Hydro system. The station was built by City Hydro, later known as Winnipeg Hydro, and acquired by Manitoba Hydro in 2002. Construction started in 1909 and took seventeen years. The first unit went into service in 1911. The spillway facilities at Pointe Du Bois have been replaced in order to maintain public and dam safety and to provide a modern and safer work environment for staff.
