Keynote Plenary: First Nation - Municipal Community Economic Development Initiative
The First Nation-Municipal Community Economic Development Initiative (CEDI) is a joint initiative between Cando and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) that enhances the capacity of participating First Nations and adjacent municipalities to engage in collaborative community economic development planning and initiatives. Join the CEDI team and a current BC-based First Nation-municipal CEDI partnership to learn about their experience in partnership, lessons learned and their collaborative community economic development efforts. The CEDI team will also provide an overview of the Stronger Together approach and CEDI program best practices and tools. Participants will be invited to work with the Stronger Together tools in their community context, increasing the opportunity to learn from one another’s experiences working with First Nation-municipal collaboration. There will be time made for dialogue, connections and questions.
