CEDEC: A Trusted Leader
of innovative collaboration among the public, private and civil society sectors.
Our partnerships drive economic growth and development
We deliver real and lasting benefits
CEDEC’s integrative Collaborative Economic Development Model (CEDM) helps communities create jobs, increase wages, grow businesses, and attract investment.
The model is based on OECD research and public, private, civil society sector collaboration best practices and is part of why CEDEC is the only Canadian representative at the OECD Local Employment and Economic Development Forum. We believe that economic activity is optimized when all three sectors are present and working together.
CEDEC fosters purposeful collaboration that inspires people to work for each other. We help build and scale up forward-looking businesses; grow local, regional, national, and global trade; upskill workers and create jobs; and boost investment in viable ventures.
