We are committed to increasing community and regional capacity through CED and we nurture partnerships, inspire innovative thinking, develop best practice initiatives, and promote collaboration across our whole service area.
Community Economic Development is community-driven actions that improve the social, economic and environmental conditions of a community. This include policies, programs and activities that improve the livability of a community, enrich the quality of life of community members, create employment and investment opportunities, enhance the health of the environment, build on the capacities and resources within an area and support community cohesion, resilience and vibrancy.
