Community Demonstration Projects

Three community partners have been selected for ROI’s Community Demonstrations Project: Chigamik Community Health Centre, Middlesex County and the County Foundation in Prince Edward County.

Through the Measuring Rural Community Vitality: Community Demonstration Projects, ROI is looking to work alongside three community partners on rural community vitality and well-being projects. Each partner community will receive $15,000 to support their demonstration project.

Our objective is to partner with projects that go further than the fact-finding, reporting and collection of community well-being indicators. We’re looking for projects that engage local community members in processes that build capacity for effective action and collaboration. Further, we are looking for community partners willing to document and share their successes and failures to a broader audience of fellow rural communities through three case studies and an interactive webinar(s).         

If you have any questions about the Community Demonstration Projects, please contact Ryan Deska at or 519-826-4204.

The Municipal Internship is part of the Measuring Rural Community Vitality - Phase 2 initiative.
