Webinars : The Role of Central Governments in Sustaining Municipalities

Source: Memorial University's Leslie Harris Centre.
Rural towns and communities across Canada are responding to the vagaries of external influences, and their own internal changes, in different and sometimes innovative ways. The public policy question facing central governments – Federal and Provincial – is: how much should they do for these communities versus how much should the communities do for themselves to ensure their ongoing sustainability?

This question is also on the Australian public policy agenda. In attempting to gain some insight into how Canadian communities are responding Prof. John Martin travelled (by bicycle) across Canada this summer visiting many small communities. In this presentation, John will discuss these places and ideas about what makes for a sustainable rural community.
