This report explores the impacts of outdoor recreation for rural communities in British Columbia, namely Burns Lake, Fernie, Revelstoke, Squamish, and Tofino. Key insights were developed through a thematic analysis of 25 semi-structured interviews with practitioners such as land managers, economic development officers, and leaders of outdoor recreation groups, among other roles. The interviews explored economic, community, environmental, and equity topics.
