Project Benefits

The Maritime Link Project is creating benefits for Atlantic Canada and beyond.

A Better Source of Energy

Moving to a cleaner source of energy helps Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia reduce their use of fossil fuels and exposure to unpredictable oil and coal prices.


Additional Renewable Energy Development

By providing firm hydro back-up, the Maritime Link Project enables more renewable energy development, such as wind, in Nova Scotia. This will break Nova Scotia from a century-old pattern of over dependence on a single, non-renewable fuel source – first oil, then coal.


Regional Energy Loop

The Maritime Link Project creates a new Atlantic electricity loop, opening access to other energy import options available in a new market, as well as future renewable energy developments in Newfoundland and Labrador.
