The Rural Ontario Institute recently released the Rural Ontario Foresight Papers in both English and French. The authors have written brief articles for the ROI blog highlighting the main theme(s) of their Paper.

The 2019 Papers offer an opportunity for rural stakeholders to be informed by the perspectives of these authors and to consider the implications for their own work or their own communities. It is our intent that the Papers help catalyse further dialogue and discussion which in turn may lead to various agencies in civil society, levels of government and/or rural citizens to consider actions or strategies that will improve rural vitality over the long term.
