Abstract

This paper examines the role of government in economic development based on a case study of the tourism industry in Bruce County involving questionnaires and interviews with key stakeholders. The findings reveal that there can be a proper role for government in economic development and this role is determined by the severity of the economic and social circumstances affecting the community.
