How are rural and island communities dealing with COVID19? What unique challenges do they encountering? What innovative strategies do they employing to recovery? During the 2020 Supporting Rural Recovery and Resilience conference a panel discussion was organized with Laurie Brinklow (University of Prince Edward Island), Heather Hall (University of Waterloo), Ryan Gibson (University of Guelph), and Sean Markey (Simon Fraser University). The discussion builds on recently published Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation’s Rural Insights on COVID19 Series. Check out the video recording below.
