What is this engagement about?
The B.C. Government has committed to developing a long-term, durable Rural Development Strategy that works for all rural British Columbians. The new Strategy will help rural and Indigenous communities build their capacity to create resilient, sustainable futures.
We want to ensure the strategy reflects the needs and priorities of rural communities. You can participate in this process by submitting your comments and by participating in online discussions.
In addition, the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development is partnering with local community organizations to host face-to-face sessions with key stakeholders.
How can my contribution make a difference?
A new discussion topic will be posted each week during the engagement. The online engagement closes February 28, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.
Feedback received will be compiled into a report and posted to this site in Spring 2018. Government will use the data gathered from this process to build a framework for the Rural Development Strategy. The framework will support ongoing dialogue and input between rural B.C. and the Province in finalizing and implementing the strategy.
