Strengthening Rural Canada: Why Place Matters in Rural Communities
This report by Leona Gadsby and Ron Samson documents phase two of a research project about developing literacy and essential skills (LES) as part of the solution to supporting growth and sustainability for rural communities.
The project takes a place-based approach and engages six rural communities in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
