SUCCESS STORIES

 A harsh climate is to blame for the bumpy streets in St. John’s. So, the city is working with researchers and Mitacs interns at Memorial University to improve road conditions via improved asphalt binder and mixtures.

Looking to enhance visitor experience in the region, Kootenay Rockies Tourism tasked student researchers at Selkirk College to provide an assessment of the current state of signage and information.
