Lawyers Cherie Brant and Michael Atlas Mentioned in Canadian Industry Online for Walpole Island First Nation Representation

November 30, 2016
Dickinson Wright Lawyers Cherie Brant and Michael Atlas recently were mentioned in an article about the Walpole Island First Nation (WIFN) in the October edition of Canadian Industry Online.

The article discussed the Walpole Island First Nation’s latest economic development projects, including two large wind power projects that are being developed in their traditional territory. The first project is a 100 MW wind power project called the Belle River Wind and it is being developed with Pattern Renewable Energy Holdings Canada ULC and Samsung Renewable Energy Inc.

The second is part of a recent competitive procurement process and WIFN was successful in its co-application for a 50 MW wind power project in partnership with Renewable Energy Systems Canada and Boralex Inc. The project is one of five wind farm projects approved by the Ontario government as part of a recent procurement in 2016 and will include up to 20 wind turbines and is planned to be in operation by 2020.

“We are pleased to have the assistance of our legal team, Cherie Brant and Michael Atlas of Dickinson Wright LLP, to assist us to navigate the competitive procurement processes and assist Walpole Island to secure opportunities to participate and earn revenues from these large infrastructure projects,” James Jenkins, Policy Analyst for WIFN, told Canadian Industry Online.
