The 300-MW Henvey Inlet wind project in northern Ontario is in the final planning stages. The feed-in tariff scheme is a 50-50 joint venture between Pattern Development and Nigig Power, which is wholly owned by Henvey Inlet First Nation. It will be constructed on reserve lands in Parry Sound County, near Georgian Bay. The project does not require provincial permits as the First Nation has legal authority to grant a lease and environmental approval.

Construction work began in 2017, with an estimated timeline of 18-24 months. Construction was temporarily halted during the summer of 2018 due to the Parry Sound 33 forest fire, however construction of the project is still slated for completion in 2019.
