Focus on Rural Ontario


Focus on Rural Ontario is a series of two-page fact sheets providing socio-economic data and trends for rural Ontario geographies.

While data is available on a community basis directly from Statistics Canada, analysis across Ontario geographies requires a significant investment of time to differentiate any rural versus urban trends. Organizations or municipalities in rural and small town Ontario may not have the resources to compare local happenings with broader trends. ROI has commissioned Ray Bollman, former Chief of Statistics Canada Rural Research Group, to fill this gap by analyzing data and producing these resources.
