A recent study was conducted in the municipalities of Pontiac and Bristol on how nature makes people lives better. This study is call Pathways to improve relationships between people and nature in the municipalities of Bristol and Pontiac, and was conducted by four university students from the University of McGill. Dalal Hanna, the head of the project, spoke to CHIP back in January. During that interview she explained why they were conducting the study in the region:

The study was released in March and shows details pertaining to the satisfaction and dissatisfaction that people had with nature. In summary of the study, it is said that only 17% of people who participated were satisfied with the benefits they receive from nature.

Community workshops were also held as part of the study and among the 17%, most of the dissatisfaction were categorized into six main issues: waste management, pollution, insufficient public education, lack of infrastructure, regulation, and insufficient communication and leadership. During the brainstorming process at the community workshop, concrete solutions were proposed for each of the six issues and published in the final version of the study. Those who participated were residents, hunters, farmers, recreational users, Chats Falls members and various stakeholders from the region.
