Protecting rivers and their communities by resisting megadams and their transmission corridors
About our alliance. Our mission is to protect rivers and their communities by resisting megadams and associated transmission corridors.
The North American Megadam Resistance Alliance seeks to:
Debunk the myth that Canadian hydropower is “clean” and renewable energy
Shut down markets for dirty Canadian hydropower by stopping transmission corridors to the U.S.
Promote alternatives to fossil fuels and megadam hydropower– such as conservation, efficiency, and local clean energy solutions that take social justice and human rights into acccount
Expert analysis says CMP corridor and other hydropower transmission corridors to the U.S. are driving construction of new dams in Canada: another reason why Governors Mills and Baker must listen to Maine voters who rejected CMP by a 60% margin

We stand in solidarity with people across the globe taking bold steps to expose and fight systemic racism, discrimination, and colonialism in all its forms. Our mission is inextricably linked to equity and justice for black and indigenous people and all people of color in communities disproportionately affected by the climate crisis and large dams.
The shameful legacy of Canadian hydropower development embodies the most destructive and racist aspects of colonialism including resource extraction, land grabs, and the ongoing cultural genocide of Indigenous people. We are committed to this fight and ending this long history of injustice.
