From the moment that people across northern BC began a fundraising drive to create an educational and research institution in the north, UNBC has been “a university in the north, for the north”. As a researcher interested in community development, I have made a commitment to share reports and findings with my community partners. To this end, I have donated reports to local libraries, chambers of commerce, local governments, and other groups.
Given that many more people across northern BC now have access to the Internet, this page contains links to a number of research publications which they may find of use or interest. Unfortunately, the copyright for most of my publication is held by a third party (such as a publishing house) and I cannot put that material on this site.
The documents are in Adobe PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing.

Note on Copyright:
    Personal or academic use of my research reports is welcomed under the standard fair use and educational use clauses of Canadian copyright Law. Commercial use is, however, forbidden without the express permission of the copyright holder.
