The April 4 forum, an initiative of Progressing Cobden, comes after a public meeting in December that discussed resettling refugee families in the town, citing humanitarian benefits and a boost to the region’s declining population.

The public meeting will be held at the Cobden Civic Hall’s supper room at 7pm on Monday, April 4.
