Resilient Rurals is a partnership between the towns of Bruderheim, Gibbons and Lamont for a regional climate change adaptation and resilience project within Alberta's Industrial Heartland.
It's a new approach—created by small towns, for small towns.

Resilient Rurals recognizes the power and potential of small and rural communities in Alberta and across the country.


Join us to define shared risks and opportunities, and to work together to serve as a model for rural resilience. We welcome any community interested to join us on this journey. We have much to share and learn!

We are a part of the Adaptation Resilience Training (ART) Program, a new program for recent grads (2019, 2020 or 2021) to work full-time helping Albertans prepare for the impacts of climate change.


We extend huge thanks to the program sponsors: the program is a cost-shared initiative supported by Natural Resources Canada’s Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) Program and Alberta Environment and Parks. The program is administered by the University of Alberta's Sustainability Council and Associated Engineering.

Resilient Rurals and its partners recognize that our communities are located within Treaty Six territory and acknowledge the contributions of Treaty Six First Nations and the Metis Nation in the region's history and growth.
