The event facilitates knowledge mobilization and network building between graduate students at the University of Guelph, researchers, and OMAFRA .

The 2019 Rural Symposium will take place on March 13, 2019 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Conference Centre at 1 Stone Road in Guelph. 

The Rural Symposium, co-hosted by SEDRD and OMAFRA, is an opportunity for graduate students to share their research with policy makers, local practitioners, and rural organizations.
