The Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation (CRRF) and Rural Development Institute (RDI) partnered in delivering National Rural Think Tank 2005- Immigration and Rural Canada: Research and Practice, which was held in Brandon, Manitoba on April 28. The event drew fifty invited participants representing the areas of policy, research and community from across Canada. Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD), Manitoba Labour and Immigration (LIM), New Rural Economy (NRE), Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), CRRF’s National Rural Research Network (NRRN), Rural Secretariat and Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) provided financial support for the event. Objectives of the Think Tank included: to identify and clarify the pertinent issues surrounding rural immigration policy, research and practice; to inform participants of the existing policy and opportunities surrounding rural immigration within the framework of “the present rural reality”; to connect the perspectives of research, policy and application by engaging interests, opinion and expertise from broad fields; to provide an opportunity for networking, facilitating future follow up on the theme; to mobilize people and ideas towards a national rural immigration agenda; and to promote active participation and contributions from all in attendance.
