The rapidly changing nature of life in Canadian rural communities is more than a simple response to economic conditions. People living in rural places are part of a new social agenda characterized by transformation of livelihoods, landscapes, and social relations -
these profound changes invite us to reconsider the meanings of community, culture, and citizenship.

Social Transformation in Rural Canada presents the work of
researchers from a variety of fields who explore the dynamics of social transformation in rural settlements, looking at them not simply as places affected by external forces, but as incubators of change and social units with agency and purpose.

In a break with a common approach to this issue, the authors pay
attention to such factors as local forms of action, adaptation,
identity, and imagination in examining the ways in which rural life in Canada - including within Aboriginal communities is changing. Mobility, leadership, and the arts are among the issues that figure in these stories of transformation, and many open a window onto
parts of rural Canada that are providing exemplary models for other communities. The book's case studies, drawn from various regions of Canada including the far North, present a rich and diverse portrait of a country undergoing tremendous change that affects people from all walks of life.
