Some Major Problems in Regional Development, Second Report and Review.
Canadian Council on Rural Development, Ottawa (Ontario).
The philosophy of, and approach to, national socioeconomic development planning are discussed in this second annual report and review of the Canadian Council on Rural Development. The first chapter seeks to define essential elements of the question of development (1) by describing in broad terms some socioeconomic disparities which exist within the nation and (2) by citing certain problems raised by the continuing process of urbanization. The second chapter is a clarification of the concept of development itself, examining its essential components: planning, town and country planning, political and administrative structures, and integrated regional development. The third chapter, which is concerned both with the major problem of information and with citizen participation, seeks to delineate the federal government role in these matters. The fourth chapter formulates recommendations intended to create the conditions necessary for evolution of a developmental plan in which the whole nation can participate. Appendices relating to operation of the council include a financial statement; rules and procedure; statute, constitution, and mandate; and lists of officers, organization members, and individual members of the council.
