Resiliency and Change

Big or small, rural or urban, our communities are experiencing change at an unprecedented rate. From climate change to economic pressures, local governments are on the front lines managing the local impact of complex issues. Across the province local government leaders are working to alleviate chronic social stresses, to respond to more frequent shocks, and to anticipate and adapt to changing social and economic trends.

The magnitude of the changes that our province and communities are facing extend beyond the capacity of any one group to address. In an uncertain future, local leaders have a duty to learn from each other and from the past and to find new approaches to plan and thrive.
