Event Details

For more than a decade, Canadian researchers and policy makers have focused on measuring the well-being of Canadian residents on a number of domains, including Community Vitality which measures the activity, strength, and inclusiveness of relationships within a community. Recognizing that rural communities are distinct from urban areas in numerous ways, the Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) undertook the Measuring Rural Community Vitality Initiative (MRCVI). Join us to learn more about this applied research and analysis initiative examining effective practices for quantifying rural civic engagement, social capital and community well-being.

The webinar will also highlight the Huron County Healthy Rural Policy Lens project, an initiative also supported by the MRCVI. Learn more about how this policy analysis and planning framework assists decision-makers to consider the rural health impacts of program and policy decisions. This webinar will provide an overview of each of these projects, including in-depth information on the project’s themes of “showcasing effective measurement approaches” and measuring rural quality of life and community well-being.”

Presenters include:

  • Kim Hodgson, Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition
  • Sheila Schuehlein, Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health
  • Mark Cassidy, Rural Ontario Institute
  • Karen Hutchinson, Headwaters Communities in Action

Hosted by HC Link and Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition. Presenters from  Rural Ontario Institute, Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health and Headwaters Communities in Action
