Government Proposing Changes to Northern Industrial Electricity Rate Program

The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) is proposing changes to the Northern Industrial Electricity Rate (NIER) program. The government’s 2015 budget committed to $120 million in annual funding to support northern industrial facilities, with the goal of providing larger electricity users in the north with relief from the cost pressures associated with high electricity prices. MNDM is considering a range of options for a longer term approach, including maintaining the status-quo.
