Socio-economic development prospects: R77-47/1979E-PDF

Manouane, Obedjiwan, Weymontachie.

"During the summer of 1977, bard councils for each Attikamek community in the St. Maurice Valley and the Planning Division of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) undertook an extensive study aimed at "translating the needs and aspirations of the St. Maurice Valley Indians into a strategy for development and growth. During the year following the band councils’ decision to proceed with the study, research was carried out locally by Indian researchers and interviewers. They interviewed individuals about housing and the labour force (manpower and employment) and met with groups interested in specific issues (education, health, trapping,etc.). In addition, at the regional level, information on the situation in the forest industry, tourism, fishing, hunting and trapping was obtained from the various companies and departments concerned. Finally, on the basis of the socio-econanic information available at the time, physical development plans were drawn-up under the supervision of the Engineering and Architecture Branch of INAC. This report synthesizes the content of the survey reports, presents a brief analysis and outlines the problem for each of the main areas of interest in terms of the spatial, social and economic aspects of development. Secondly, the report suggests possible solutions in each of the areas mentioned above and includes recommendations."--Foreword, p. 1-2.
