The recent outbreak of mountain pine beetle in British Columbia resulted in significant negative effects in many communities, harming both their social and economic fabrics. As the infestation expands eastward, forest dependant communities in Alberta will be affected as well, to a degree that will depend on their level of resilience. This research responds to these concerns.
