Waska Ressources has been involved in many projects on the James Bay Territory over the past years. Among others, we participated to the construction of the weirs in the Rupert River, the waterfront spur in Waskaganish Bay and the Rupert River access road. We also accomplished many various construction works in the Community like a grocery store, the water filtration plant, the power transmission line connecting the village to the network as well as a workers camp. Some clearing projects, various works with tallymen (ATV trails, snowmobile trails, boat ramps, etc.) and the Eastmain-1-A-Sarcelle-Rupert environmental follow-up, were all accomplished with local First Nation workers.

Waska Ressources managed major construction projects and large-scale civil works, as well as several hundred kilometers of roads, including many forestry studies for Hydro-Québec (clearing studies and transmission line projects).
