The BC government is holding an online “Rural Development Engagement” as part of the process of creating a new strategy that “will help rural and Indigenous communities build their capacity to create resilient, sustainable futures.”
Rural residents are invited to participant in the process by submitting comments at https://engage.gov.bc.ca/ruraldevelopment/. A new discussion topic is being posted each week. The first three were: opportunities for youth, indigenous partnerships, and services and technology. Comments close on Feb. 28.
According to the website, the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD) is also holding in person sessions with “key stakeholders”. Feedback will be compiled into a report which will be posted to the government website this spring.
