Description: The Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium (CIRC) is a research and community outreach initiative based at the University of Northern British Columbia. The CIRC is dedicated to enhancing the understanding of cumulative environmental, community and health impacts of resource development. As part of an ongoing project focused on developing new tools and processes to assess and monitor the positive and negative impacts of resource development
across northern BC, CIRC convened a series of community workshops between 2016-2018 in the District of Vanderhoof, the Peace River Regional District and the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality. This project aims to integrate community, environment and health values and perspectives, and account for diverse forms of knowledge and information, to inform the development of cumulative impact assessment tools.
Key Words: Cumulative impacts, community engagement, data-driven storytelling
