2015 – Year of the Umbrella

The New Year has brought together over a dozen inspired community members, representing a variety of Almaguin community groups who meet each month to advance the four agreed-upon project elements.  What’s New?

  • Four Economic Development Committees in the Almaguin Highlands region (Municipalties of Powassan Economic Development, South Almaguin Economic Development, Central Almaguin Economic Development Association, Almaguin Highlands Economic Development Committee), approved the project (in principle) after presentations in fall of 2014.
  • The Umbrella Project Committee (UP) meets the third Thursday of the month at 6 pm at locations throughout the Almaguin Highlands.
  • PARC was approved for a grant of up to $5000 by NECO to begin Stage 1 of the project - community collaboration and survey (Feb 2015).
  • Umbrella Project Committee members will be collaborating to make a shared presentation at AHED’s annual Showcase Almaguin event scheduled for March, 2015 in Trout Creek.
