On June 6, The County of Haliburton is partnering with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), and the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) for a ‘teeny tiny summit.’

The event is an opportunity to learn from expert volunteers and active community leaders, and to network with like-minded individuals who share a passion for teeny tiny places.

“Whether you are a community leader, a rural volunteer, a community economic developer or an entrepreneur, the teeny tiny summit is right for you,” County tourism said

Teeny tiny summits were started in 2016 as a forum to discuss scale-appropriate economic development strategies for Ontario’s smallest communities.

Since that time, more than 2,750 people have participated from across Ontario. Teeny tiny summits share practical examples, lessons learned and community economic development tactics that are scale-appropriate for Ontario’s smallest communities.

The event will take place at the Minden Community Centre and feature keynote speaker Peter Kenyon talking about what builds great communities.

Local organizations and guest speakers will also take part. The event runs from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and will include snacks and a lunch. The public can register through myhaliburtonhighlands.com.
