Great Falls Community Hall
Great Falls is home to a Generating Station on the Winnipeg River approximately 130 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg in the Rural Municipality of Alexander. The dam is owned and operated by Manitoba Hydro, and the town was once occupied by employees of the dam. No longer a company town, the residents are helping to preserve the history of the community. The Winnipeg Electric Railway Company began building the dam in 1914. First power was delivered in 1922, and the construction was completed in 1928.
In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016, Great Falls contributed 2.31% of all generation in Manitoba, about 840 gigawatt hours.
