  13. Challenges and Opportunities • Fewer children • School closures or opportunity to re-think how we provide education services? • Fewer workers • Labour shortages or job opportunities for younger workers? • More seniors • More demand for government services or new business opportunities? • Changes at community level • Fewer leaders and volunteers (e.g., town councils, fire protection) or opportunity for communities to share more services?

  14. Rural Secretariat’sCitizen and Community Engagement • Rural Secretariat is engaging broad range of citizens • Municipal leaders, youth, community groups, business owners, seniors, etc. • Objectives – build capacity and transfer knowledge • Focus on long term planning, not short term reactions • Common themes and findings • Youth have strong views – less caught up in the “way it was” • Broad understanding of the need for change • Discussions are based on possibility – not complaints
