What is the future of rural Canada?

That is the question we are going to start discussing in this very first episode of Rural Routes, a show that asks what is rural in the 21st century.

Ryan Gibson and Sean Markey are researchers at St. Mary’s University in Halifax and Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, respectively. They are both members of Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation, a Rural Routes partner. They are also two of the dozens of authors who recently produced the State of Rural Canada report. The report is the first comprehensive look at rural Canada and it outlines the current issues for every province and territory as well as the country as a whole. It’s a base from which to start appreciating a rural Canada that is complex and dynamic, but neglected and misunderstood.

This show is about helping us understand the complexities and changes sweeping through our rural regions.
