The Laurie River #2 GS is located approximately 210 km (130 miles) northwest of Thompson and approximately 10 km (6 miles) upstream of Laurie River #1 Generating Station.

The Laurie River #2 Generating Station consists of a one unit powerhouse, a main dam, a five bay stoplog controlled spillway, three gravity dams and two dykes. The station has a name plate capacity of 7,000 horsepower (5 MW). Construction of the station was completed by Sherritt Gordon Mines Limited to supply their mining operations in the area. The generating station originally went into operation in 1958 and was officially transferred to Manitoba Hydro on May 1, 1970.
