Welcome to the Canadian Sociological Association’s Rural Society research cluster!

Our purpose is to create a space within the CSA’s annual meetings for researchers whose interests encompass rural sociology to share their findings. These sessions create a special opportunity to compare notes, see common patterns, note differences, discuss new theoretical perspectives and methodological dilemmas. In so doing we meet old friends, find new friends and build broader networks of those interested in what is happening in rural areas in this rapidly changing world.

Please join us this June in Ottawa as we discuss papers at these two sessions: ‘Dynamics of Change in Rural Labour Markets and Communities’ and ‘Extractive Resource Development and the Sustainability of Northern Communities’.

To join our mailing list or send news and events for publication on this website, please send an email to Jennifer Jarman,
