SEDRD Profs Contribute to "State of Rural Canada" National Report

Posted on Friday, September 18th, 2015

Professors Al Lauzon, Wayne Caldwell and David Douglas of the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development,contribute to the State of Rural Canada 2015 report which was produced by the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation (CRRF) and the Rural Policy Learning Commons, an international network funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. 

The idea for this State of Rural Canada report came about in order to draw attention to rural challenges and opportunities, and to provide a source of information and a platform for information sharing. The chapters of the report focus on the rural trends within each province and territory, ending with a summary discussion chapter that provides a series of recommendations for advancing rural development in Canada. The authors who volunteered were asked to share their provincial territorial perspectives on core themes affecting rural Canada.
