Building Stronger Rural and Remote Communities in BC
Established in 2004, The BC Rural Network (BCRN) is a coalition of organizations, communities, and individuals who share a commitment to building the capacity of British Columbia to develop responses to rural and remote community issues. The Network dialogues with rural communities and organizations across BC through a series of annual regional forums, the Biennial BC Rural Communities Summit, an annual province-wide Members' Workshop, an e-mail list, regular newsletters, and this website.
New Development: Project Comeback
BC Rural Network (BCRN) has launched a new initiative—Project
Comeback—to engage youth and enable them to make a permanent home in rural communities. With help from Fraser Basin Council, Project Comeback will be piloted in five BC communities (four currently confirmed): City of Williams Lake, Smithers District Chamber of Commerce, Village of Chase, and Regional District of Mount Waddington. The pilot will run over a two year period—until November, 2014.
