There is some links to Tamarack resources during our Teeny Tiny Snapshots later in the agenda. :-)
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:10:00
The high cost of housing can be an issue in bringing the young people back - Or the fact that most of our housing is built for big families. There are hardly any "starter homes" for the young people just starting out.
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:11:00
hmmm, ideas on keeping in-touch with your region's youth after they leave?
Carla | The United Church of Canada
01:11:37
Part of this seems like it is the amenities and the congeniality within this age group. Canmore AB has created CYAN (Canmore Young Adult Network) that is a grassroots organization creating the community for /with them.
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:11:38
Jean Coles - I have seen some rural communities that have looked at policy changes to allow additional housing - such as allowing secondary dwellings etc.
Jean Coles, Middlesex County

Instagram and snap chat
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:12:50
Ah, social media. Thanks Jean!
Shauna Rae
01:12:56
A big part of attracting younger people to small communities is actively opening things up to diverse groups. People need to feel welcome and validated

Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:13:51
Great point Shauna. There was some really good content on that during the first Teeny Tiny Summit in October. Don (one of our speakers) is on this call as well and did a wonderful job speaker about that topic in addition to our keynote.
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:14:06
I would not have moved to my community being under 30 :) There is nothing for the 20's year old's to do in my neighbourhood. IMO It is great for those with kids, but before kids... not much to do.
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:14:07
Yes, agreed Shauna.
debbie wilson
01:15:24
North Grenville is changing their housing policies to allow additional secondary dwellings
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:15:35
What can neighbourhood's do for the 20 somethings (feasibly)?
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:15:49
Any communities exploring Teeny Tiny Housing?
Shauna Rae
01:15:50
Yes! I called Don directly and we had a great conversation! 👋 Don!
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:17:21
Transit is important for young people and affordable housing.
Shauna Rae
01:19:01
I think Peter’s point about including young people in planning is crucial.
Petra Wolfbeiss
01:20:29
beautiful.
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:20:41
The art is stunning.
Arlene Laberge - Coordinator - Women's Entrepreneurship Program
01:20:44
amazing!!!
Pierrette Desrochers
01:20:53
eastern Ontario (Prescott Russel area has Pop-silo, art on the silos. http://popsilos.ca/en/ Beautiful!!!
Rose Thomas, MFN EDO
01:21:02
could do this in mining towns (headframes)
Anna Robertson
01:21:35
how about water towers?
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:21:46
"Look at old assets with fresh eyes" ❤
Pierrette Desrochers
01:22:08
Rose, yes' that would be beautiful too, even the large Sawmills that have the tall towers too!
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:24:22
Art is a great way to bring people to your town. Young people love "photo ops" and will post photos online and it becomes viral
Ian Scott
01:24:29
“Jugged Innovation” by Navi Radjou and Jaideep Prabhu inspires non-conventional frugal innovation (hacks or work-arounds) that defy economy of scale and solutions that are not appropriate for rural or third-world markets. Gets imagination working on new viability for rural areas.

Thanks Karen
Carla | The United Church of Canada
01:27:40
We have been running Community Round Tables in 100 towns to start the conversation of how to do this collectively as a community. A lot of this starts with simply having a conversation. https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/38qjxoz3iybczj5gsh6oi/8-Community-Round-Table-Process.docx?dl=0&rlkey=guji8kp05rvol4ias5109y502

Love resident R&E!
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:29:54
I am really enjoying all of these resources and stories being shared. Carla - I really like the idea of collective impact and have been trying to learn more about it. Thanks for sharing all. Be sure to keep at it. If you have questions for Peter, please be sure to ask them in the chat now.
Brittany Tomasini
01:30:10
To answer Nick's question about what can neighbourhood's do for the 20 somethings (feasibly): encourage small coffee shops (if you have them) or other hot spots to host music nights or "open mic nights", utilize public spaces such as arenas or community centres and startup sport groups (floor hockey, soccer, ice hockey etc.), create book club groups (possibly the local library can help with this), utilize heritage trails or other walking trails and create running groups or cross-country skiing groups.. You can advertise these all through Instagram or Snapchat.. Most 20 somethings (in my opinion) are also still utilizing Facebook groups too, so advertise through community groups! These are some ideas that our municipality implements and the municipalities surrounding us as well. Utilize local attractions, similarly to the art idea! These attractions bring youth and those 20 somethings to the area to visit and do photo ops and to just say "oh, I've been there!"
Ian Scott
01:30:15
Great dissatisfaction with corporate food systems presents an opportunity for local solutions - e.g. Quinn’s Meats in Yarker Ontario.
Karen Palmer/Prince Edward County
01:30:58
Very true - people are very interested in the food supply chain at the moment. They can actually know who grows or processes their food in rural environments.
Shauna Rae
01:31:29
Yes! Creativity!
Karen Fischer
01:32:35
We welcome questions for Peter...please submit here, or you can unmute yourself :-)...
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:32:36
Thanks Brittany - that's awesome! Pre-pandemic we had a coffee shop start a games night where they stayed open late.
Brittany Tomasini
01:32:57
Awesome - games is a great idea! I like that
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:33:13
Great ideas Brittany!
Carla | The United Church of Canada
01:33:16
@Peter - every small town is a little different. So not every idea will be a perfect fit. How to nuance the ideas that you have shared? Or what SWOT/ABCD feels like a good starting point? Is there anything about Canada that you can see (that we might not as we are embedded in it) that we should highlight as a strength?
Brittany Tomasini
01:33:18
Thanks!
Arlene Laberge - Coordinator - Women's Entrepreneurship Program
01:33:44
Thank you Peter! That was great!!
Gabi-PKED

an inspiring presentation
Bev Hendry, CAO West Lincoln
01:34:17
Peter - that was an inspiring presentation! such energy!
Patti Tallman HCDC
01:34:30
will be receive a copy of Peter's presentation ?
Kay Matthews | OBIAA ED
01:34:41
Yes, Karen we are talking not just affordable housing, but attainable housing as well.
debbie wilson
01:35:28
Very inspiring …especially when we are implementing a Tourism attraction advisory Committee
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:35:33
Yes. The presentations will be posted on the Teeny Tiny Summit website as well as the recording. You will find them later today (or early tomorrow here - https://teenytinysummits.omafrabdb-events.ca/agenda/)
Avis Price
01:35:58
Our community has no where to rent and few homes left to buy that few people can afford.
Ian Scott
01:36:19
See Carcross Yukon Territory for the Canadian equivalent in Mountain Biking
Petra Wolfbeiss
01:36:57
Peter great discussions/considerations on attraction back and bringing vibrancy to small towns. Having just relocated from Toronto (lived in Toronto my entire life) to small town-Ontario-how are issues such as diversity and inclusivity considered in building small communities? People have their circle of friends, their routines and outsiders will be outsiders. I think this can be a big issue for people who are not coming back but are looking for a new life...
Emmanuel Rey - Ville d'Ottawa
01:37:43
Thank you Peter! So many opportunities to capture opportunity from the change COVID has brought. Marketing and communication will be very important, but also collaboration between towns, cities and tourism (large and small) to package or refer each other or work together on their marketing campaigns in mutually beneficial ways. Great to see the conversations happening here today!
Ian Scott
01:41:31
Urbanites that relocate to rural areas typically have high net worth which makes them different from locals in spite of their cultural or ethnic diversity. Serving the wealthy market disenfranchises locals (e.g. Banff, AB)
Shauna Rae
01:42:07
Total agree @Peter W
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:43:17
Many communities are like this - unwelcoming to the newbies
Shauna Rae
01:43:26
@Ian I am not a ‘high net worth’ person
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:43:41
Interesting Ian... any ideas on how to bring the two together. I've seen something similar where the 'establishment' felt infringed on rather than welcoming
Petra Wolfbeiss
01:43:59
It may be the biggest challenge. All people want a degree of community-always being an outsider will cause out migration...
Shauna Rae
01:44:36
It’s part of challenging a system that has been in place forever!
Ian Scott
01:44:50
Etiquette for newcomers and etiquette for locals. Sensitivity training.
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:45:13
How do we get 'the community establishment' to buy-in to attracting newcomers?
Kay Matthews | OBIAA ED
01:45:35
LOL, my mother in law always said "don't trust the first person you meet in your new neighbourhood"!
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:46:25
lol
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
01:46:36
You need to break down the barriers between "US" and "Them"
Shauna Rae
01:46:37
But why would someone move to a community where they had to have an ‘etiquette’ to belong?
Shauna Rae
01:47:40
First step is admitting your town hasn’t been welcoming and move to how do we create connection and belonging
Carla | The United Church of Canada
01:47:40
Tamarack has resources about this (think someone posted about this earlier): https://www.tamarackcommunity.ca/communityengagement
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
01:48:06
Peter's organization, the Bank of Ideas website has many resources as well https://bankofideas.com.au/resources/
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:48:18
Might help to have the 'establishment' involved in creating the asset map and attraction actions?
Jeff Kinsella
01:48:19
It's not an enforced etiquette, it is mindfully welcoming newcomers and making that process into the normal way that people think and behave.
Shauna Rae
01:49:22
Yes Nick!
Bev Hendry, CAO West Lincoln
01:49:56
to OMAFRA - would RED support Assets Inventories?
Ian Scott
01:50:13
Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor had different approaches to relocation from New York City to “Green Acres”. Although a comedy, the principles of joining a rural community from an urban context are juxtaposed are presented. Sharing this series to an assembly of residents and newcomers could get a conversation started.
Cindy Hastings
01:50:23
Five communities in the North Simcoe area created the Culture Alliance. We have been working on a community driven cultural asset map: https://www.culturealliance.ca/culturalassets
Alan Engelstad
01:50:46
What are good strategies for convincing higher levels of government to support local initiatives? We are often thwarted by restrictive bylaws.

Thanks for sharing that potential funding source Carla!
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
01:57:42
Awesome, Thanks Emilio!
Karen Fischer
01:58:02
Thank you Emilio!
Alan Engelstad
01:59:18
We provided substantive input to our secondary plan. All of this was: 1) corrupted by the consultants hired by the city who fumbled badly. 2) thwarted by appeals to OMB that had little to do with our village, but we were swept into it. Five years later we do not have a functional secondary plan supporting land use practices conducive to sensible development. Our city is worried about debt, incomes, lack of jobs, etc. but somehow this is allowed to fester. That’s just one dimension.
Nick Kinkel OMAFRA
02:00:49
That's too bad Alan, process can be so influential.

MyMainstreet did a great job of both getting the word out and making this application process very accessible. Thank you for your good work.
Patti Tallman HCDC
02:06:13
can you provide the information of what communities received the funding
Stacey Jibb
02:07:49
Can you provide some more insights about how small communities can demonstrate their ability to meet the equity seeking requirements of the scoring matrix? For the communities who have been successful, what did they demonstrate within their applications for this requirement?
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)
02:07:50
Thank you Amy! Looking forward to see the impacts of this program in rural communities.
Carolyn Puterbough (OMAFRA)

Do you have questions for Marcus about the Manitoulin experience during the pandemic?
Jean Coles, Middlesex County
02:16:46
So many people wanted to stay local in Ontario with all of the closed borders and uncertainty. Manitoulin is such a great option to get away. I got as far as Tobermory this past summer.
Maureen Agar

Fantastic Teen Tiny Summit...off to another meeting. Have a wonderful Christmas.
