Rimbey Regional Synergy Group


RRSG is a community and industry forum to:

  • learn about industry, landowner rights and local activities and an opportunity to network and discuss comments/concerns;
  • introduce new developments or present operational plans and improve public awareness;
  • hear and respond to comments and concerns received through constructive feedback;
  • identify and share issues and work on collaborative solutions;
  • promote ongoing education and understanding between all members;
  • build relationships and foster understanding.

RRSG does not;

  • mandate compliance;
  • mediate;
  • deal with surface rights issues



A local group, known as RADCAP, initially raised concerns about air quality in the Rimbey area centering on flaring and plant emissions. Through a combination of public awareness, determination, improved regulations and technology much has been accomplished in the area since.

A group of landowners decided that they wanted to go further and pursue other issues of concern and the Rimbey and District Stakeholders Group was formed in the mid 1990s.

These landowners wanted to sit at the table with companies that operated in the area and seek solutions to issues and concerns arising from increased industry activity.

The organization has evolved and now operates as the Rimbey Regional Synergy Group (RRSG).



Community, Industry and Government working together in an organization built on a healthy and productive foundation of mutual trust, respect and understanding.


Regional stakeholders working together to promote social responsibility through meaningful dialogue and collaborative solutions.


RRSG typically meets on the third Thursday, bi-monthly starting with January. The meetings are typically held at the Bluffton Hall beginning with lunch at noon. There is generally no meeting held in July or August. A public Open House event is typically held in June in Rimbey.
