Feedback from the Community Economic Development 101 Sessions

Man walking down small town shopping districtHave you heard the term Community Economic Development but you’re not sure exactly what it means? It’s not simply the application of a “do this and you’ll get that” strategy but rather a process that a community can undertake to identify and use
resources to attract capital and increase physical, commercial, and business development and job opportunities for its residents. OMAFRA’s Regional Economic Development Branch has been offering a series of CED 101 seminars across the province this spring to bolster understanding of the principles of economic development at the community level. Municipal staff, councillors and those involved in business development related boards and committees were invited to participate in a free interactive workshop. “Just a short note to thank you for putting on the seminar this past Friday, I found it to be clear and concise.” Chair Pembroke BIA, Economic Development Committee City of Pembroke, Planning Review Board City of Pembroke The workshop provides:

  • A model of how to understand basic economic activity in your community
  • Improves your understanding of the potential scope of economic development activity
  • Some practical tools to assist in your economic development efforts
