Lac La Biche

In the past, RCDC (Community Futures Lac La Biche) helped me start and finance my business ventures, and since then, I’ve wanted to give back to the community. I am proud to be part of an organization that has been responsible for so much positive change in our community and happy to lend my considerable knowledge of the local history and dynamics to affect that change.            


Lori Tarrant

Born and raised in Plamondon, I truly have a vested interest in the community and the future of our businesses.

I look forward to lending my perspective and knowledge and being part of the community's plan to develop and grow.
