In step with rural development initiatives across Canada today, these fourteen case studies examine the shift toward sustainability-based planning as a key element of community development. Further, they explore the growth of partnerships between communities and post-secondary institutions. Rural development researchers, decision makers and elected officials, political scientists and policy analysts, and community engagement practitioners will benefit from this book’s ideal, rational progression—which mirrors the policy process itself—from problem identification to engagement, solutions, and evaluation.
