More than 170 people attended a Life in the Heartland community information evening at the Dow Centennial Centre (DCC) last month.
The Apr.18 event gave community members a chance to connect with industry representatives and learn more about projects and investments in the industrial heartland.
Life in the Heartland holds the community information evenings every spring and fall.
April’s event at the DCC included presentations from Shell, Inter Pipeline and Nutrien. Attendees also visited booths set up by local industries, where they were able to communicate directly with industry representatives.
“One of the key ones there would be the Inter Pipeline operations, which have just announced a new facility that is being constructed right now,” said Tracey Hill, chair of Life in the Heartland.
Life in the Heartland is an initiative started by four local organizations, Alberta's Industrial Heartland Association, Fort Air Partnership, the Northeast Capital Industrial Association and the Northeast Region Community Awareness Emergency Response to provide a way to keep residents informed about industry activities in the area.
Using social media, newsletters, public events and its website, Life in the Heartland shares information on air and water quality, transportation issues, plant openings and other things affecting local residents.
Hill encourages members of the public to visit the Life in the Heartland website to learn more.
