Reversing the Tide - Successful Strategies for Rural Communities

Reversing the Tide: Strategies for Successful Rural Revitalization – This conference, to be held in Prince George October 6-8, 2008, will convene world class organizations from BC, Canada, and abroad, to share their tested strategies for successful rural revitalization.

Join delegates from all levels of government, First Nations, economic development and community economic development practitioners, interior BC business & finance organizations, academics, and non-profit organizations to learn about real life success stories that can be taken back to interior BC communities.

Delegates will learn about economic, environmental, and social well-being issues that contribute to vibrant rural communities via plenary sessions and small workshops. Topics will include, but not be limited to current thinking on future economic and social trends relevant to interior BC communities, effective regional rural investment, affordable housing to support in-migration, and effective partnerships between Aboriginals/non-Aboriginals.
