Workplace Wednesday: Strengthening Rural Canada
Date posted: October 29, 2014
Decoda Literacy Solutions has partnered with Essential Skills Ontario, Literacy Newfoundland and Labrador, the Saskatchewan Literacy Network and Réseau pour le développement de l’alphabétisme et des compétences (RESDAC) in Strengthening Rural Canada, a study of human and social capital of rural and remote communities in Canada.
The initiative will examine the socio, cultural, economic and organizational attributes of the community and population of 28 communities across Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Working closely in 11 of these 28 communities (including at least three Francophone), the initiative will use place-based methodologies – achieving change through community engagement and development – to help develop local human capital strategies and solutions.
