The Northern Corridor Webinar Series

The Canadian Northern Corridor Research Program is a flagship research program of The School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary.

The purpose of the Program is to provide the information and analysis necessary to establish the feasibility of the Canadian Northern Corridor: a network of multi-modal rights-of-way across middle and northern Canada, with an accompanying policy, regulatory and governance structure.

Read more about the concept, here.

For such a mammoth undertaking as the proposed Canadian Northern Corridor (CNC) to be successful requires development of an accompanying governance framework in which private and public stakeholders and Indigenous rights-holders co-operate in decision-making.

Join Mr. Andrei Sulzenko and Dr. Katharina Koch as they examine the distinct but interconnected stages of CNC development and implementation that will require decisions on governance structures and processes. To what extent are different stakeholders involved in each stage, and in which capacity? The researchers will discuss their study of existing Canadian and international infrastructure corridors, and identification of specific factors, such as stakeholder involvement and time-lines, that potentially impact the development of a governance framework for the CNC.
