Rural Policy Learning Commons(RPLC)

Completion of the RPLC Project

With hopes to highlight some valuable pieces and components of the Rural Policy Learning Commons, members from different organizations across Canada have gathered virtually to commemorate the completion of the RPLC project!

Over a decade in the making, the RPLC has facilitated a myriad of research projects, as well as supported countless emerging scholars and academics. The celebration not only addresses key advances the project has allowed for, but it provides a piece of recognition for different partnership organizations, faculty and students, as well as personal reflections from those who have been involved. While an hour could not possibly address the breadth of the RPLC project, we hope to share some valuable sentiments regarding the project as a whole.

Rural Policy Learning Commons (RPLC/CAPR)

The Rural Policy Learning Commons (RPLC) is a $2.5M partnership grant funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) with the Rural Development Institute (RDI) and Brandon University. Major objectives of the RPLC are to build rural capacity and strengthen relationships to inform rural research and policy. Some members focus on provincial and regional research while others concentrate on international comparative analysis through working relationships among institutions and individual partners. We encourage you to join the rplc network, and learn more about how together we can enhance rural prosperity for all!
