Strengthening Rural Canada

Strengthening Rural Canada is a comprehensive study of the challenges and opportunities facing Canada’s rural communities. Using the most recent Census and National Household Survey data, the initiative examines existing social and human capital dimensions in rural areas and how these factors will impact rural growth.

The three-year pan-Canadian initiative is intended to provide important information on demographic, social, cultural, economic and organizational changes happening in rural, small town, and remote communities; to highlight the various challenges that these communities are facing or will have to face in the coming years; and to provide potential solutions for these challenges.

Overall, 28 communities across four provinces were chosen to take part in the initiative, including five communities from British Columbia: Chetwynd, Gold River, Hope, Salmo, and Tumbler Ridge.

The research findings offer practitioners, researchers and policy makers important insights into the labour market and economic challenges and opportunities of rural areas in British Columbia.

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  2. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

  12. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. However just imagine if you added some great
    pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could undeniably
    be one of the best in its field. Wonderful blog!

    emails with the exact same comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
