COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN RURAL CANADA: HANDBOOK FOR PRACTITIONERS
Volume 11 Number 1.
This Canadian government publication bills itself as a "handbook for practitioners," for those who wish to succeed in business and community development. It could be used by community planning groups to clarify objectives and provide commonsense information on how to get started and how to proceed with a group project that involves a specific community and/or its particular business groups within that community.
The authors divide community and business development into two distinct sections and deal with each one in separate parts of this publication. At the end of each chapter, within these two broad sections, there is a checklist to sort out the information given and provide an ordered direction to follow in order to accomplish group aims in such things as project feasibility and project funding.
Ideas appear to be organized, logical, and clear. The book would be a good starting place for groups that are both new and unskilled at the monumental task of organizing a community project. Indirectly, this same information could be used in senior urban planning or business courses as a simulation to promote student awareness of community organizations and businesses and how they operate.
