The Community Development Institute at UNBC is pleased to announce this spring’s speakers
Series topic: Building for the Future: Foundations for Sustainable Prosperity.
Resource communities and regions are in a period of dynamic and transformative change. While these changes put pressure on communities, they also present an opportunity to renew and redefine our communities.
This panel discussion will explore how resource-dependent communities and regions can create a stronger, more prosperous future by taking a comprehensive and integrated approach to community and economic development. The topics covered will include sustainable land use and real estate development, housing, community infrastructure, community services, and finance.
Panelists will be Jack Wong, Chief Executive Officer, Real Estate Foundation of BC; Craig Crawford, Vice-President, Operations, BC Housing; Bill Nicholls, Chief Executive Officer, Northern Savings Credit Union; and Don Manson, Coordinator, Community Development Institute at UNBC.
The main panel will be followed by a respondent panel. This panel will include Councillor Brian Downie, City of Terrace; Janice Paulitchke, Terrace Chamber of Commerce; and Lori Ferreira, Kitimat Child Development Centre.
