Transition Bay St Margarets is pleased to be one of the sponsors and 
organizers of this important regional event.


In the face of rapid global change, new ideas, tools, and projects 
are needed to assist local communities in taking charge of their 
own economic future.

Many communities around the world have been successful in meeting this 
challenge and have begun to realize that a new economic model is both 
desirable and possible.

The Local Prosperity Conference is two events combined into one.  A 
one-day*Up!Skilling Festival*is open to the public and provides a chance 
to learn a range of ‘do-it-yourself’ skills, crafts and trades taught by 
experienced teachers.  The main conference*Local Prosperity: New 
Economics for Rural Canada* is a two and one-half day experience 
in vision, practice, and action. Join us as we explore the possible, 
learn from others, and prepare to return home and implement new 
community building tools.

This conference will focus on how individuals, businesses, and 
communities can design and then implement a practical blueprint for a 
prosperous future and a healthy economy – a future that is cooperative, 
compassionate, and long-term. An economy that leads people to meaningful 
and dignified work, respects nature’s capital, and reflects a culture of 
both growth and harmony.


*Local Prosperity*is intended for those who are in a position to make a 
difference in their community – those who have the enthusiasm, time and 
energy to learn and pull others into vibrant new projects for developing 
their regional, community and neighborhood economies.

We are limited to 300 attendees at*Local Prosperity*. You are encouraged 
to register and book accommodations early.


If you would like to help make a difference in your community and the 
region, and are interested in helping organize this event, please let us
