By starting a community newspaper, this project aims to promote a sense of community, enhance community engagement and connection, strengthen community partnerships, and increase awareness of the resources and services that exist in Grande Cache. A community-wide survey and community capacity assessment identified that re-establishing a local newspaper would help to start a conversation about mental health and foster connections between community members, services, schools, businesses, and local government. The content of the newspaper will focus on community stories, with community members, schools, service providers, faith groups, and local businesses welcome to contribute to the newspaper content. The publication will be available online and print, with local youth hired to distribute the print version.
