EcoPlan conducted a detailed regional tourism market assessment, opportunity analysis and community-based structured decision-making process to help identify, and prioritize tourism development opportunities for an Aboriginal community located in northern Alberta.

The project included an evaluation of three opportunities that had already been identified by the community and involved the creation of an advisory committee made up of senior Driftpile First Nation Leadership, Elders, staff, and youth. The project resulted in the identification and prioritization of four tourism opportunities whose development and operation will help the Driftpile First Nation meet multiple community development objectives, including revenue generation, community capacity building, job creation, and the promotion and revitalization of Driftpile culture.
