RURAL SOCIETY IN CANADA A basic course in the sociology of rural life with emphasis on Canadian rural life. The course systematically examines the structure of Canadian society in terms of distinctive features of its population, family, community, church, school and local government and how they have all been traditionally shaped by farming as the predominant economic activity. The course further explores how the mechanization and commercialization of farming and the forces of urbanization are revolutionizing Canadian rural life and threatening its very existence.
