This project aims to support sustainability and regional development on the tip of the Northern Peninsula by examining how partnerships and networks have been built between different individuals, organizations, communities and sectors in the region. It focuses on  the tourism industry, as well as how it interacts with the natural resource and research/education economic sectors as identified local priorities. The project also aims to build upon existing networks and build new networks based upon local interest in doing so.

Surveys and interviews have been carried out with individuals inside and outside of the region who have been involved with the sectors of interest and/or have been involved with development initiatives on the tip of the Northern Peninsula.

Upcoming Session

On the morning of October 4th, 2010 (from 9:30am to 12:00pm at the Plum Point Motel) we will be holding a session which will report back the results of this research thus far.  A survey was completed by 182 people who live on the tip of the Nortern Peninsula, as well as 21 people who live outside the region and have worked with people in the region from the tourism or natural resource sectors. The results of this survey and priorities that have come out of it will be presented. We would also like to have some group discussion on some of the key findings. Whether you have completed the survey or not, you are welcome to attend this session and will likely find it quite informative.

Following this reporting session, there will be an afternoon network weaving session from 12:30pm to 3:00pm.  This will be led by international network expert June Holley, who will describe how new and innovative tools can be used to improve and develop effective networks. Network weavers are people who are motivated to make things happen and who have leadership qualities. You should attend this afternoon session if you think that you could be a network weaver, and if you would like to be part of moving forward any of the key priorities that have come out of this research.

We hope to see you in Plum Point on October 4th. Please RSVP to Nina Mitchelmore ( by Tuesday, September 28th  if you would like to attend. Also, if you feel that this may interest others you know, please feel free to pass this information along.
