One Vision, Many Voices: How to Build a Sustainable Rural Canada – 4026KB (2008)

In July 2008, the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties (AAMDC) hosted a national symposium – Rural Matters! Forging Healthy Canadian Communities. The goal was to bring together delegates from across the nation to discuss important issues pertaining to rural Canada. Over the course of the symposium, eight rural sustainability workshops were held to help set key priorities for rural Canada to focus on in the years to come. Based on the common themes of these priorities and other discussions held during the symposium, seven recommendations were derived to be presented to governments and stakeholders on how to build a sustainable rural Canada.
