Infrastructure and Services

The Infrastructure and Services Team focuses on rural infrastructure, its challenges and uncovering possible solutions. The team has recently released The State of Rural Canada Report (September, 2015). This report draws attention to rural challenges and opportunities, and provides a source of information and a platform for information sharing. The report contains chapters on each province and territory and ends with a discussion chapter that offers a synthesis of core themes and a series of recommendations for advancing rural development in Canada. You can find the full report here.
