AMO Working Group on Rural and Northern Issues Discussion Paper.
AMO convened a Working Group on Rural and Northern Issues in May 2005 to tackle four tasks:

  1. Identify rural and northern issues/priorities that can be addressed through the Province’s recent Strong Rural Communities Plan and Northern Prosperity Plan for Economic and Community Renewal,
  2. Prioritize identified issues into two categories: low cost-high impact policy changes and longer term community investments,
  3. Develop an advocacy plan to communicate these priorities to the Province, and
  4. Pursue both rural and northern issues in this process, addressing commonalities and recognizing differences to maximize staff resources.
