Agenda2022 Healthy Communities Conference Agenda


Conference Objectives

During the Conference, participants will focus on and discuss:

  • What sustainable communities mean to us
  • The community as a dynamic system
  • What your organization can contribute
  • How do we move forward?  


Keynote Speakers - Leith Deacon is an Associate Professor in Rural Planning and Development in the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development. He is a full member of the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) and a Registered Professional Planner (RPP). Leith’s research examines concepts around sustainability, governance, and resiliency. Leith is attempting to gain a better understanding of the dynamics associated with municipal rural and remote economies, specifically resource-based economies across Canada – what are their experiences and why are some communities able to grow and prosper while others experience decline.
