A researcher at Memorial could work with Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador and/or the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to create a framework that can help guide communities toward collaborating with each other effectively. This collaboration could be based on shared services, such as waste management and drinking water systems. The frameworks should show specific ways to implement collaborative arrangements. The Humber region could be used as a case study, which would also be applicable to other parts of the province. This could potentially be a student led project.
