Expanding Our Roots

2006 Women of Resource Communities Conference

April 5-7, 2006

In early April, women from communities around British Columbia came together to share ideas and issues at the Hills Health Ranch in the Cariboo region (100 Mile House) for the 2006 Women in Resource Communities conference .

Organized by the First Dollar Alliance, participants heard from a variety of speakers, among whom were Delta- South MLA, Val Roddick and Fernie Mayor, Evelyn Cutts, who discussed challenges for the future as careers and the economy change and as lifestyles create a more transient population. Areas like agri-tourism and the impending 2010 Olympics both have the potential to influence decisions made by community members and municipal governments as well.
