Abstract

Based on existing research, including our own findings from interviews and focus groups with rural youth as part of the ‘Rural Youth and Recovery project’ subcomponent of the Community-University Research for Recovery Alliance (CURRA) initiative, we developed an on-line survey for youth either currently living in Newfoundland and Labrador, or from the province but living away. In this survey we examine and evaluate youths’ perceptions of local employment and community options and experiences. Included in this analysis, is examination of the range and quality of employment opportunities, views and experiences with fisheries, and issues related to migration and sense of place. In an attempt to improve our understanding of some of the unique issues associated with rural youth, we also explore differences and similarities between rural and urban youth in these areas.
