Participants in the Regional Workshop take part in a breakout session

The Harris Centre’s seventh Regional Workshop was held in partnership with the Hyron Regional Economic Development Corporation (Zone 2) on May 10th in Labrador City. Attendees included a variety of stakeholders from the Labrador West region as well as 25 participants from Memorial University.

Over 65 people attended the Regional Workshop and the broad range of participants from Memorial University coupled with the diverse group of local stakeholders made for an informative, educational, and rewarding experience for those involved.

There were a total of 35 follow-up opportunities identified at the workshop – 16 in Labour Markets and Social Development, 9 in Mining and Metallurgy Clustering, and 10 in Winter Tourism.

We are in the process of following up on the opportunities identified at the Regional Workshop for Memorial to partner with the community. We are sure we can build on the energy and enthusiasm generated from the event to make these opportunities a reality.
