VICTORIA, B.C. — Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development Minister Doug Donaldson announced that the provincial government is seeking feedback from the public on a new rural development strategy for B.C.

The strategy will be based on ways to improve economic development, which the government says will ensure a broader and more inclusive approach to rural development.

“Coming from a rural community, I know first-hand the challenges facing rural B.C.,” said Donaldson. “I look forward to people’s ideas and input, as we build a long-term rural development strategy that will work for all rural British Columbians by building resilient Indigenous and rural communities.”

The government also said it will be holding a number of face-to-face sessions with community partners around the province. Residents can submit their comments and ideas on rural development until 5:00 p.m. Fort St. John time on February 28th.
