CEDEC is proud to be a CANNEXUS supporting organization for the fifth consecutive year.

CEDEC will be participating as a Workforce Development Panel Champion at this year’s conference!

Moving through the first third of the 21st century, Canada will face a period of significant transformation due to the cumulative effects of multiple societal trends related to demographics, economics, politics and technological change. Ensuring the country’s continuing prosperity in this evolving context largely depends on the ability of individuals, communities, institutions and societal sectors to work together to achieve a more integrated approach to economic growth and human well-being.

John Buck, President and CEO of CEDEC will moderate a panel discussion about this subject, Enhancing Economic Activity through Public, Private and Not-for-Profit Collaboration, featuring a number of subject matter experts from all of these sectors.

Founder & CEO, Fogo Island Inn and Shorefast Foundation

Growing up on Fogo Island in Newfoundland and Labrador, Zita Cobb developed a deep belief in the inherent value of place and a profound respect for the human ways of knowing that emerge from respectful relationships with nature, culture and community. After completing high school on Fogo Island, Zita decided to study business in order to understand the global economic systems that had disadvantaged Fogo Island and numerous other small communities – bringing many to the brink of extinction. After completing university in Ottawa, she worked with JDS Fitel, subsequently JDS Uniphase, where she contributed to building the company into one of the most successful high-tech innovators in history. Zita returned home to Fogo Island in the early 2000s and, along with her brothers Anthony and Alan, began to build Shorefast’s initiatives. In 2016, Zita was awarded the Order of Canada in acknowledgement of the work of Shorefast in collaboration with the community of Fogo Island to help secure a more resilient future for this singular rural place.
