Working together to sustain rural communities is the goal and was the message of the Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities (ACSRC) to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce.

ACSRC Director Lars Hallstrom spoke to those gathered for the chamber’s luncheon meeting Nov. 2 at the CRE and said the group has been around for about two-and-a-half years. He said it was born out of the merger between the University of Alberta and the Augustana Campus and its aim is to work with rural communities such as Camrose to research, educate, create outreach opportunities and knowledge around how rural centres like Camrose can remain sustainable.

“Camrose from an academic standpoint falls into what we call a new ruralism, because Camrose and cities like it are situated and serve a function of places like Edmonton or Calgary,” he said.
