CEDI Phase III – Partnership Selection

On behalf of Cando and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities we would like to thank all First Nation-municipal applicants to CEDI Phase III. With resources to support only eight First Nation-municipal partnerships, the CEDI program was overwhelmed with twenty-eight joint applications from 34 First Nations (including 1 Tribal Administration) and 34 local governments (including municipalities, counties, and regional districts) from across Canada. We continue to work hard to identify sufficient funding mechanisms to meet this overwhelming demand for support from First Nation-municipal partnerships. 

We have selected 8 diverse First Nation-municipal partnerships from across the country to participate in CEDI Phase III, including 2 in British Columbia, 1 in Alberta, 1 in Saskatchewan, 1 in Manitoba, 1 in Ontario, 1 in Quebec and 1 in New Brunswick. Rather than sharing the community names of the selected partnerships, we respect that each partnership will make their own shared announcement when it best suits their communities.

Thank you to every
First Nation-municipal partnership that applied.
