Project Comeback is a project of the City of Williams Lake, in partnership with the Fraser Basin Council.

The project is designed to gather input from young people who are new to the community (or have returned) about what attracted them to Williams Lake and what they would like to see changed. If you are 35 years or younger and have moved (or returned) to Williams Lake in the past five years, we want to hear from you!

You will be asked to enter your e-mail — this is so that we can share the results of the survey with you as we go along in this project, and give you the opportunity to participate in the project in other ways if you wish. We want to assure you that your e-mail address will be kept confidential, it will not be associated with your responses to the survey, and will not be shared with anyone or used for any purpose other than sending you an email with information about the Project Comeback process. If you have any questions, please contact Anne Burrill at aburrill@williamslake.ca (250-392-8480) or Alan Madrigga at amadrigga@williamslake.ca (250-392-1764). 

If you have any friends or colleagues you think would be interested in participating, please feel free to forward this e-mail to them.

This process will take between 20 minutes and 30 minutes to complete. You don’t have to complete all the questions in one sitting. You can participate at any time before the process completes and continue, change or even delete your answers.

Please complete this process by: Friday Dec. 20, 2013 at 1 p.m.

Many rural communities face the twin demographic trends of youth out migration and an aging baby boomer population.

Succession is becoming a major issue in many rural communities, as aging baby boomers approach retirement with little in the way of a succession plan or successor. If these trends are not proactively addressed many rural communities will suffer from the closure of their small businesses and the continued out migration of their youth. In an interconnected world, people can live and work almost anywhere.

As a result communities across B.C. are in a global competition for local talent.

Communities that are able to retain and attract a vibrant work force will likely be able to take advantage of the opportunities created by broadband internet access and more knowledge based job opportunities.

To do communities must become places that are attractive to their younger citizens.

Through a survey, workshops, and a community project, Project Comeback will help us understand how we can respond to the needs of our younger citizens and become a place that people want to come (back) to.
