The Grande Alliance study is an exercise in visualizing a context in which all communities play a more active role in defining future development on the territory, with a predictable and well-conceived transportation network at its center. It therefore follows that the approach includes extensive engagement amongst Cree and non-Cree stakeholders, with a strong emphasis on direct users of the land found in proximity to the infrastructures under study.
The infrastructures examined as part of the Grande Alliance transportation feasibility studies are intended to address a specific need or opportunity to fully integrate the regional economy of the Eeyou Istchee/Baie-James region, in particular the Cree communities, in a manner that allows for the sustainable development of its resources.
