Books/Livres : Investing in Place Economic Renewal in Northern British Columbia

Source: UBCPress.
Northern British Columbia is a place of rich cultures, diverse communities, and a strong sense of identity. The future of this vast, resource-rich region and the people who call it home could be either driven by a narrow economic agenda or guided by innovative, place-based solutions that seek to build viable communities and resilient local and regional economies.
