If you are moving a building or commercial equipment or structure, a ten day work clearance/permit is required. Submit a Building and Structure Move Application online.
Application forms are also available by calling 1-888-MBHYDRO (1-888-624-9376) and at your local district office.
Oversized loads that exceed 4.15 metres (13' 7") require the mover to contact Manitoba Transportation and Government Services or the local municipality where the move is taking place. This includes the cities of Brandon and Winnipeg jurisdictions.
If the oversize load exceeds the height of 4.8 m (15' 9"), written instructions are required from Manitoba Hydro prior to conducting the move. These written instructions will indicate the types of hazards present and what actions are required on the mover's part to ensure their safety, and the safety of others, while working near overhead lines.
We require a minimum of 10 working days notice for loads up to 5.9 metres (19' 4") in height. Loads taller than 5.9 metres will need additional notice.
