Rural Lens

Newfoundland and Labrador has a rich, vibrant rural presence. The Rural Lens tool ensures that rural concerns are considered in the decisions we make. The tool helps point out possible impacts that decisions could have in rural parts of the province.

Here are some questions to get you thinking about rural impacts:

  1. Will the decision or policy directly impact the economic, demographic or social circumstances of communities, stakeholders or people in rural areas? If yes, how?
  2. Will the decision or policy indirectly impact the economic, demographic or social circumstances of communities, stakeholders or people in rural areas? If yes, how?
  3. Will the decision or policy affect rural communities more than urban ones? If so, how?

Our office works with government departments to determine rural impacts. If you need help answering the questions above, check our contact page.
