Wind energy developments are making positive and lasting contributions, and helping to strengthen and diversify communities across Canada. In addition to significant environmental benefits, wind energy is delivering hundreds of millions of dollars in new tax revenues, payments to farmers and landowners, local business opportunities and community vibrancy funds in rural communities across Canada.

As with any local development, municipalities have a key role in determining how best to integrate wind energy in their communities. CanWEA’s commitment to public consultation and stakeholder engagement recognizes that residents should have factual information and a meaningful role in developments that affect their communities.
