Objective(s): The objectives of this research are to: 1) identify key government and nongovernment stakeholders and current mandates regarding tourism; 2) identify both tangible and intangible constraints to stakeholder collaboration that are unique to remote area tourism development; 3) determine effectiveness of present collaboration strategies amongst stakeholders; 4) explore importance of tourism training and education for stakeholders. The reasons for this type of data being collected is to develop more effective collaboration strategies for stakeholders in the development of a sustainable tourism industry in Inuvik.

Project Description: My research collection will be comprised of both interviews for key stakeholders and surveys amongst all stakeholders in the tourism industry. I am anticipating beginning interviews and surveys in early August and completing the research by mid-September 1998. The interviews and surveys will involve government agencies and nongovernmental organizations (NGO's)- no individual names will be used. The culminating activity will be a meeting of all stakeholders involved in my research (early September, 1998) to discuss the resulting information from the interviews and surveys.
