CED 101 – Learn the Basics of Community Economic Development

Are you looking to support and grow the economy in your community? Community Economic Development (CED) is the process of fostering an environment that results in the creation of wealth and well-being for the benefit of the community.

These no charge regional workshops are designed for those involved in local economic development, such as municipal councilors, economic development practitioners, and volunteer committee members with economic development responsibilities.  Learn and take away practical tools to help your municipality develop and implement an effective economic development strategy.

CED will help you to learn the basics about economic development in your community and how these concepts can be applied in your municipal environment. Topics include:

  • Why CED is important to your community
  • The value of planning in your community
  • Collaborative roles of individuals and organizations
  • Tools and resources that are available and how they can assist you
