Sustainable Rural Communities in an era of Population Change
What can rural communities teach us about how to meet the challenges and opportunities of population aging? One of the most important ‘rural lessons’ is the crucial yet uncertain role of volunteers and voluntarism organizations in supporting older people and in sustaining rural communities. Drawing on insights from community-based research in Canada and internationally, this presentation examines the evolution of volunteerism in aging rural communities and the dynamic ways in which rural leaders, service providers, volunteers and older residents are responding to rural change in an era of population aging. Implications for rural community sustainability are discussed and rural insights for aging communities across Canada are shared.
