Community Economic Development Initiative (CEDI)

FCM and Cando have launched Phase 2 of their successful Community Economic Development Initiative (CEDI) for First Nations and nearby municipal partners.

Between now and 2021, as many as 30 new communities will create joint  economic development and land management partnerships based on their shared desire for a better future.

From the start, these new CEDI partners will be able to learn from Phase 1's participating communities and from CEDI resources that apply not just to our formal CEDI partners but to other First Nations and municipalities across Canada who choose the path of collaboration.
