Rural revitalization is a significant challenge for many rural regions and communities across BC — and elsewhere in Canada and abroad — as they see their populations ageing and, in amenity-rich locations, unprecedented rapid growth.

Whether the focus is on the arts, technology, or innovative approaches to "old" economic sectors, rural communities that succeed can identify and leverage one or more unique strengths.
