The series consists of files created by the Dept. of Agriculture between 1962 and 1971 to manage the Agricultural and Rural Development Agreement (ARDA) project #29007 funded by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia.

This project, the Initial Rural Development and Research Study, was directed by B. Thorsteinsson and J.P. Allin of the Dept. of Agriculture, along with contract director C.C. Watson between 1966 and 1970. The purpose of the study was to determine ways and means of improving the socio-economic conditions in certain low income areas in British Columbia.

The files are arranged mostly in alphabetical order. Boxes 1 and 2 contain the administrative and organizational records including contracts, project outlines, correspondence, statistics, expenses and other financial information and reports relating to the Initial Rural Development and Research Study (project #29007). Boxes 3 and 4 contain files arranged by community name and include maps, lists of residents, correspondence and other documents relating to that community.
