Bio/Research

Leith Deacon is an assistant professor in Rural Planning and Development in the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development. He is a full member of the Canadian Institute of Planners and a Registered Professional Planner. Leith’s research examines concepts around sustainability, governance and resiliency. Prof. Deacon is attempting to gain a better understanding of the dynamics associated with municipal rural and remote economies, specifically resource-based economies across Canada – their experiences, reasons why some communities are able to grow and prosper while others experience decline, etc. He employs a planning lens to frame the project and is exploring what planners and municipal planning departments can do to increase the resiliency and/or sustainability of these communities.
