Description

A long pan shot of the Robert Saunders dam in Cornwall, Ontario.

On August 19, 1954 ground breaking ceremonies at Cornwall, Ontario and Massena, New York marked the official start of the massive St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project. Its construction would harness the power of the Long Sault Rapids by building three large dams and many smaller dams. Construction was completed in July 1958 when electricity flowed from the Canadian and American generating stations housed in the Moses-Saunders dam spanning the St. Lawrence River.

Robert H. Saunders Generating Station serves the Province of Ontario. Annually, the station generates over six billion kilowatt hours of clean, renewable electricity and meets the needs of over 600,000 homes. This represents more than three per cent of Ontario’s power.
