Small Towns, Big Opportunities

Our latest white paper, Small Towns, Big Opportunities is published in partnership with the Ontario Real Estate Association, and focuses on how COVID-19’s impacts could be an opportunity for the Province to unlock growth in rural and northern communities. We dissect the economic trends occurring in rural and Northern Ontario before the pandemic and analyze how the pandemic appears to be changing these dynamics throughout various types of communities.

The paper includes 15 recommendations that aim to create and attract jobs, reverse the out-migration of young talent, close the infrastructure gap, and foster more housing starts.
