Building Capacity with rural, remote, and Indigenous communities.

Who is the Rural Development Network?

We are a national nonprofit that supports the sustainability of rural, remote, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities across Canada. Together, we discover and build solutions to address the unique challenges of each community. We do this by:

  • Creating innovative tools, resources, and training.
  • Supporting groups in accessing capital and project funding.
  • Advocating and connecting people through events and networks.
  • Providing expertise and boosting community capacity for their own projects.
