Today, the Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, released the report on the Muskrat Falls Inquiry from the Honourable Justice Richard D. LeBlanc, Commissioner. The report’s six volumes are available at

The Muskrat Falls project has had a profound impact on ratepayers and the financial situation in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Muskrat Falls Inquiry was a comprehensive and detailed investigation that is of great importance to the people of our province.

The report makes findings and recommendations related to the inquiry’s terms of reference, as announced by government in November 2017. The terms of reference are available here.

“I would like to thank Justice LeBlanc and everyone who participated in the inquiry, for their commitment and dedication. This is a large body of work that we will now take time to thoroughly analyze. While we can’t undo the past, we can consider all recommendations and learn from it. This will allow us to make informed decisions as we take actions to minimize the impact of this project on current Newfoundlanders and Labradorians and future generations.”
Honourable Dwight Ball
Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador

“Over the past five years, our government has worked diligently and methodically to get the Muskrat Falls Project under control. We will work to prevent such a poorly conceived project from burdening the people of the province again.”
Honourable Siobhan Coady
Minister of Natural Resources
