Thank you for your interest in Canadian Northern Corridor Engagement! Our online engagement page for Grande Prairie, AB closed on November 7th. If you have any questions for our team about the engagement, you can submit them below. Please check back for our Back-to-Community Report in December!

The University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy is seeking input from residents of the Grande Prairie area, the traditional territory of Treaty 8 First Nations and the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 6, on the Canadian Northern Corridor (CNC) Research Program!

The Program explores the feasibility, acceptability, and desirability of a connected series of infrastructure corridors throughout Canada. On this page, we will share findings and plans for future investigations related to corridor development and infrastructure planning with interested community members. You can learn more about the Corridor Concept by reading the materials and viewing webinars shared on this page, or by visiting the Canadian Northern Corridor Research Program website.

Who should participate:

  • Residents of Grande Prairie and its neighbouring communities
  • Members of local First Nations, the Métis Nation, and other members of the local Indigenous community

Ways to participate:

Join Our Online Discussion. We invite you to use the tools on this page to discuss with us and your neighbours what a Canadian Northern Corridor could mean for Grande Prairie. Contribute to the online forum, post your ideas, take the survey, or submit a question for one of our researchers. Your input will help researchers to better understand your community’s needs and priorities, which will inform dialogue and decision-making about the Concept and the planning and development approach that might support it. To join the conversation below, please start by clicking REGISTER at the top of this page.

Attend a Community Engagement Session. This session will address connectivity through transportation and telecommunications; consider future economic opportunities; and examine social, environmental, and cultural impacts. Our goal is to hear as many perspectives, opinions, stories, and ideas as possible to understand how corridor development could create opportunities and challenges within the Grande Prairie community!

Our session took place on Thursday, October 6, 2022 - check back in December for our report!

    • How do you think corridors could help Grande Prairie realize local infrastructure needs and priorities? 
    • How could corridor development negatively impact Grande Prairie and the priorities of the local community?
    • What would corridor development need to include or consider to make sure communities like Grande Prairie benefit?
