Central Labrador Economic Development Board Regional Workshop

The Harris Centre’s tenth Regional Workshop was held in partnership with the Central Lab­rador Economic Development Board (Zone 3) on May 14th at the Hamilton Hotel in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. Attendees included a variety of stakeholders from the Central Labrador region as well as participants from Memorial University. The purpose of this workshop was to promote Memorial University as a resource for regional policy and devel­opment throughout the province and to identify opportunities for future collaboration in the areas of research, teaching and outreach within the region between Memorial University and community stakeholders.

The morning and afternoon ses­sions were divided thematically into healthcare, northern research/education, natural resour­ces, and cultural tourism. There were a total of 42 follow-up opportunities identified at the workshop – 12 in healthcare, 6 in northern research/education, 14 in natural resources, and 10 in cultural tour­ism.

The workshop was held in conjunction with a Memorial Presents public policy forum titled: “Self-Government or Self-Administration? Aboriginal Governance in Labra­dor”. The Keynote speakers for the event were Dr. Larry Felt, professor of Sociology at Memorial University and Dr. David Natcher, professor at the University of Saskatchewan and former Canada Research Chair in aboriginal studies at Memorial.
