Abstract: The potential issues and challenges for sustainable community and regional development in the north indicate a need for senior levels of government to begin thinking about establishing regulations for the use of fly-in/fly-out resource camps. As northern Canada becomes increasingly globalised, external factors are changing the way the region participates in the global economy, particularly with respect to resource extraction. As exploration moves further into remote areas, a multi-level regionalist approach is needed to ensure coordinated sustainable community and regional development.
