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 & small-town Ontario may not have the resources to compare local happenings with broader trends. Through the Focus on Rural Ontario series, ROI seeks to fill this gap by analyzing data and producing these resources.
