February 6, 2020: Meeting 6 – From Talk to Action – Expanding the Circle
Location: Headingley Community Centre
The CLI leaders met at the Headingley Community Centre for a full day of presentation and discussion. They reflected on their progress and movement from talk to action.
This meeting was unique because the leaders invited members of their administrations, an important step to ensuring that the collaboration advanced at the CLI table becomes embedded in each participating community’s processes and policies.
It was a tremendously productive gathering that resulted in the establishment of a steering committee to lead detailed discussions on CLI projects and provide practical advice on expanding the leadership table.
Rolling Up Our Sleeves: On August 18, 2020, the CLI Project Team, CLI Steering Committee and the CLI Elders met at Assiniboine Park to explore the feasibility of a Water Quality Trading program in the CLI region. The leaders affirmed their support for advancing a Water Quality Trading Feasibility Study and explored the possibility of piloting infrastructure projects in communities to demonstrate water quality improvements. They also discussed the opportunity to undertake a shared inventory of natural resources.
