Strategic Sectors Development Plans
The consultants conducting the Strategic Sector Study for the Regional District recently issued the newsletter posted below that summarizes the status of the project. The RDMW has also hosted several sector workshops with industry participants to discuss ideas for initiatives that could help boost economic activity. You can read a summary of these focus group discussions in the document below. We have also developed an online survey to provide an additional opportunity to provide thoughts and suggestions on the development of the strategic sectors.

Regional District declared Carbon Neutral in 2012!
Climate change is a global challenge. The RDMW has committed to reduce and offset our corporate emissions and in recognition of this effort we have been awarded Level 3 recognition - "Achievement of Carbon Neutrality" by the joint Provincial-Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) Green Communities Committee (GCC).
Launching the Hornsby Appeal
In 2013, after nearly a decade of difficulties concerning the final fate of the artefact due to its condition and known significance, the Regional District of Mount Waddington, local government and owner of the artefact, will move the Hornsby Steam Crawler to a piece of public land in Coal Harbour, a community close to its historical area of operation around Holberg Inlet. While many steam aficionados understandably wish to privately own and restore this piece of history at another location, it belongs to the people of the Mount Waddington region and needs instead to be affordably and appropriately housed, protected and interpreted for future generations. To achieve this, donations and sponsorship are required.
