Working together with the municipalities of Hinton and Grande Cache, GPRC and local stakeholders, Athabasca University researchers are investigating and evaluating best options for the long term sustainability of these communities.

The purpose of this project is to investigate sustainability options for the long term growth and diversity of these growing communities.
The team behind the research includes scholars and experts in industry, finance, humanities and education.

This project is unique in nature and far reaching in its objectives. During the course of this project we will provide images of the locations and the work being done, and include links to media coverage of the project.
