Are you interested in the future of recreation and tourism on the Peace River between the Town of Peace River and the BC border? If so, please take a moment to share your ideas with us. Please also share this with friends and family who have an interest in the Peace River.

The Peace Valley Conservation, Recreation and Tourism Society (PVCRTS) has contracted RC Strategies+PERC to lead the development of the Peace River Recreation and Tourism Access Study. The study will identify strategies and actions that should be taken in order to enhance the recreation quality and tourism potential of the river.~ The study will form the strategic focus and priorities of the PVCRTS for the next ten years.


To date, we have engaged members of the public and stakeholders through an interactive online mapping website, stakeholder interviews and meetings and three open houses which were held in region on November 18, 19 and 20th. Unfortunately, attendance at the open houses was less than expected.


We want to ensure you can share your ideas and, as such, we have extended the engagement program. In response to recommendations from some attendees at the open houses, we are pleased to provide an online survey as an additional opportunity to share your input.


The survey, which asks the same questions as posed to attendees at the open houses, will be available until December 13, 2019 at 430 pm (MT). Please visit the following website to share your input:




Thank you in advance for helping us shape recreational access to and the future of recreation and tourism on the Peace River.

Alberta’s six northwestern municipalities have come together to form the Northwest Species at Risk (NWSAR) Committee. The six municipalities that form the NWSAR are:

Town of High Level
Mackenzie County
County of Northern Lights
Clear Hills County
Town of Rainbow Lake
Town of Manning

After learning of the Government of Alberta’s proposal to permanently protect 1.8 million hectares of land for caribou in northwest Alberta, Councillors from the area’s six municipalities leapt into action and formed the Northwest Species at Risk (NWSAR) Committee to ensure local voices were heard. The committee created a report for the federal and provincial governments to consider when implementing plans to protect the Woodland Caribou- which are a threatened species. The Committee wants to see protection plans be effective but also consider the socio-economic impacts to our communities, so that we can be prosperous and keep jobs here. The committee believes that the caribou can be protected without creating a provincial park and even protect them more effectively without creating a park. Through the Committee’s hard work over the past year, a socio-economic analysis, the collection of scientific data and extensive multi-stakeholder consultations, a report was created with ten specific recommendations for responsible caribou recovery.
A strong, unified voice of municipal leaders and area residents is vital in responsible protection of all species at risk.
