CEDI Partnership Profiles Phase 1

Learning from Past CEDI Partnerships - Phase 1 CEDI Partnership Profiles

Click on a map to learn more about the partnerships that made CEDI’s Phase 1 so successful:

 

British Columbia

 

British Columbia

Seabird Island Band and District of Kent are adjacent communities in BC's Fraser Valley, approximately 125 km east of Vancouver, where both agriculture and the salmon fishery have been important to the local culture and economy.  The two communities are now looking to collaborate on a joint marketing strategy to promote tourism and business development in their communities.

 

Alberta

 

Alberta

Along the southwestern edge of Lesser Slave Lake and 250 km north of Edmonton lie the Town of Slave Lake, Sawridge First Nation and MD of Lesser Slave River. These three communities came together following a devastating wildfire and realized that working together on common issues would help them to achieve more.

 

Manitoba

 

Manitoba

Located 625 km northwest of Winnipeg, these "three communities with one heart" are working together to better promote their region and address major development and infrastructure needs.  The similar sizes of OCN and The Pas provide a unique critical mass in northern Manitoba that has created a regional service centre.

 

Ontario

 

Ontario

Comprising two southern, road-accessible communities and a fly-in First Nation 425 km to the north, these three communities represent the widest distance between CEDI partners.  They are demonstrating that three diverse communities can work together effectively and are using the strengths of each partner to address the challenge of access to nutritious food in northern communities.

 

Quebec

 

Quebec

This bilingual community pairing near the Quebec‒Ontario border has decided to pursue a joint regional tourism strategy and improved coordination among the economic development departments of all three communities.  The three communities meet monthly to advance their joint strategy and share relevant information among their communities.  They have led the way in accessing a CEDI peer mentor to enhance local collaborative work.

 

New Brunswick

 

New Brunswick

Strategically situated close to the Quebec and Maine borders, these two communities have found common ground in their desire to preserve their distinct cultural heritages - both Acadian and Maliseet.  Their unique location along the Trans-Canada Highway offers a natural advantage to collaborative development at the "Gateway to Atlantic Canada".
