THE WORKING RIVER PROJECT

The Working River Project was launched in 2015 with the goal of telling the economic story of the living, working Fraser River through the FRDC’s sustainability lens.

It will be a $2.25 million world-class educational exhibit that personalizes the Fraser for everyone. Through interactive technology – and dialogue on key topics – visitors will discover how the Lower Fraser appears in their daily lives through a complex web of social, environmental and economic considerations.

FRDC has been able to secure 11 leading government and business partners to help develop the project. Phase 1 involved the development of the Preliminary Design and Concept Plan. A Final Design and Concept Plan will be completed by fall of 2016. The goal is to formally launch the Working River Project Exhibit in September 2017.
