Evaluation of Northern Peninsula Regional Collaboration


There was a pilot project that engaged communities, Regional Economic Development Boards and others to work together on regional development issues. However, the government ended its funding, and it did not continue. A Memorial research project could examine that initiative and see whether it is worthwhile to resurrect with some changes. The initiative was evaluated by the committee, and results were generally positive; however, there was some disappointment that recommendations made by the committee were not followed by the government. A challenge that has been identified is that there are clashes between individual municipalities, but how can that be addressed? How can technology help communities work together?
