Year of publication:

Claiming Our Place: Women’s Relationship with Rivers, a community based participatory action research project, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, NL explored the connection local women have with the natural environment, and the implications of the nearby hydro-electric development at Muskrat Falls on the Churchill River on their wellbeing.  It was an initiative of FemNorthNet (FNN), a project of the Canadian Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW-ICREF) looking at the effects of economic restructuring on women in the north. Women have important things to say and hold the key to the continued well-being of their communities.
