Presentations/Présentations : Rural Communities in Alberta and Canada: The Three Pillars of Sustainability

Source: University of Alberta, Calgary Centre.
Rural communities play an important role in Canadian society. With booming economic conditions in some communities and long-term decline in others, the social, ecological and economic contexts of rural areas are increasingly complex.

While rural communities face diverse and unprecedented challenges, they have not received the prominent and sophisticated research and policy consideration as have major cities in recent years. At the University of Alberta, groups such as the Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities and the Alberta Family Business Institute fill the gap for research and policy in rural areas by fostering constructive dialogue, promoting interdisciplinary and collaborative research, and developing partnerships in rural communities in Alberta and beyond.
