Ghost-Waiparous Access Management Plan: Consultation Program

Alberta Sustainable Resource Development
Project Type
Provincial Government

Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) crafted an access management plan for the Ghost-Waiparous area of the Rocky Mountain Forest Reserve. The access management plan identified a course of action and key directives for managing recreational off-road vehicle (OHV) use and random camping in the area.

SRD contracted Praxis to design and implement the public information and consultation process for the project. Key activities of this process included information sessions in six locations in the region; a series of information displays located in public venues in the region; seven facilitated discussion sessions with key stakeholders; production of a Backgrounder communications document; a public survey accessible online or in hardcopy format; and, a regionally-based random sample telephone survey.

Praxis compiled and analyzed the results of the public consultation components.  Drawing on these findings Praxis prepared a report for the government working group, which consisted of representatives from various provincial government departments. Based on this information, the working group developed a draft management plan.
