Webinar: Moving Past the Tipping Point — Alberta's New Land Use System

Dec 9 2009 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Alberta's lands have been subject to ever-increasing pressures by population growth, industrial expansion and competition for multiple uses on the same pieces of land.

In its Land Use Framework, the province stated:"What worked for us when our population was only one or two million will not get the job done with four, and soon five million. We have reached a tipping point, where sticking with the old rules will not produce the quality of life we have come to expect. If we want our children to enjoy the same quality of life that current generations have, we need a new land-use system."
