Core Planning Team which had representatives from key Government of Alberta ministries; a
Community Advisory Group with representatives from 14 communities and municipalities within
the CLOSA; and, an External Advisory Group with representatives from industry, First Nations,
Métis, and community stakeholder groups. A number of public open houses were also held across
Through consultation and technical analysis, a series of potential growth and infrastructure
