Northern Rockies Partnership

Northern Rockies Partnership

To address the regional growth issues for the benefit of the whole region, the NRRM is partnering with Fort Nelson First Nation, and is working to expand the partnership to include Prophet River First Nation, Industry, and the Province in the Northern Rockies Partnership.   the NRRM continues to ensure we are well prepared for growth, to ensure positive impacts while mitigating the negative impacts of development.

Fort Nelson is the Service Sector hub of the Horn River Basin, and as such our local service sector is prepared for growth!  You can check out our business directory to find a local supplier, or contact the Fort Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce or EnergyServicesBC.

The Horn River Basin Producers Group is a group of the 8 major producers in the Horn River Basin.  By working together, they have been able to save on costs, work collaboratively to utilize more local service providers, and lessen their impact on the environment.

The NRRM works hard with industry to ensure a balance of economic prosperity and social and environmental responsibility.  To that end we have been active in various Environmental Assessment processes for pipeline infrastructure and natural gas processing facilities, evaluating the impact of up and coming land tenure sales, and continue to be involved in various provincial initiatives.
