Measuring Rural Community Vitality: A Rural Ontario Insitute Initiative Download as iCal file
Thursday 11 May 2017, 13:30 - 14:30


The viability and economic success of small towns and rural communities is closely related to a number of intangible factors which are hard to measure, but integral to municipal functions.

The Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) will share outcomes and learning from their Measuring Rural Community Vitality Initiative (MRCVI). MRCVI is an applied research and analysis initiative examining effective practices for quantifying rural civic engagement, social capital and community well-being. The Huron County Healthy Rural Policy Lens will be profiled as one of the tolls/projects supported through this Initiative. In this webinar, ROI will provide an overview of the initiative, as well as indepth information on the project’s themes of “showcasing effective measurement approaches” and “measuring rural quality of life and community well-being.”
