SEF has always believed that big impact can be created if you look at the opportunities in your own community. Lately, we have partnered in several interesting conversations and projects using community economic development to improve the lives of Albertans.
If you would like to read more about community economic development and what it can do, take a look at two new publications in The Library on this site.
Edmonton Community Development Corporation: Making the Case is a concept document examining what a CDC could contribute to the city’s goal of eliminating poverty in a generation.
Community Economic Development Opportunities in Alberta was created by a group of individuals and organizations, shepherded by Momentum, an outstanding organization working in Calgary to increase prosperity and inspire opportunities for all. We hope it will provide some concrete ideas for our government colleagues in how to improve community for all.
