RuralTube : One-way Bridge to Rural and Urban Canada

Source: Atlantic RURAL Centre.
Rob Greenwood on municipalities and rural and regional development. This presentation draws upon twenty years of comparative research around the North Atlantic Rim and across Canada, as well as experience working with community development organizations, governments and universities in trying to apply lessons.

It also draws upon recent research on the Social Foundations of Innovation in City Regions and on the Governance of Rural-Urban Interaction. It suggests that stronger longer government, within a context of sub-provincial regional cooperation, is essential for successful rural and urban development in Canada. Whether the current distribution of powers in Canada, and the increasing urban bias of policy makers, will allow these lessons to be applied, is a very different matter!
