Community Economic Development

Community Economic Development (CED), the centre of CEDEC’s strategy, involves the mobilization of community members to take charge of their own social, cultural and economic development. CED identifes and builds upon assets and opportunities supported with appropriate information, resources, expertise, and planning.

From the initial stages of information gathering, analysis of economic challenges and the identification of assets to forging partnerships, we can contribute at every step of a community economic development initiative.

With our Quebec-wide reach and pan-Canadian connections, our intervention spans from mobilizing and helping with the start-up of local action groups to the execution of well-planned projects supported with meaningful partnerships.
