Building the Future: Rural Infrastructure & Regional Economic Development
June 29th @ 2:00pm

Ashleigh Weeden, PhD Candidate - Rural Studies, University of Guelph


Ryan Gibson, Libro Professor in Regional Economic Development at the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development, University of Guelph

The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging local governments on every level. Infrastructure investments are often used as critical mechanisms for supporting economic recovery.

This crisis, combined with anticipated challenges associated with climate change and opportunities presented by technological breakthroughs, requires new approaches addressing the connection between infrastructure and economic development. However, there is very little information available to help decision makers and municipal staff proactively manage these challenges and leverage new opportunities.

We invite you to join us for this webinar to learn more about how you can participate in critical research on these issues being undertaken by researchers at the University of Guelph and Simon Fraser University (British Columbia).

Join us to learn more about how you can participate in critical opportunities to influence policy recommendations for supporting rural recovery and resilience through strong, future-oriented infrastructure investment and management.
