In January, the Harris Centre, in partnership with Community Business Development Corporation (CBDC) Central, will be holding its first Thriving Regions workshop in the Exploits region. 
Join with others from across the Exploits Valley region to: 
• Share a vision for the region’s future.
• Identify key opportunities and challenges for advancing the regional development in the Exploits Valley.
• Select a small number of priority themes for applied research that will inform and advance social and economic development in the region.
Registration and further information will be announced in early January 2023!
