Doing Business - CDC

The Community Development Corporation is a non-profit organization. The mandate of the CDC under the direction of a thirteen person council is to support and encourage community driven efforts to foster the social and economic development of the community as a whole. Community needs and opportunities are determined generally by local attitudes and values.
 
An Economic Development Officer has been employed to promote the municipality, encourage new business opportunities and to work with current businesses to enhance their success and viability.
 
A blueprint for change was developed after comprehensive surveys and meetings were conducted in the municipality with individual input as well as focus groups representing specific interests. The Visions document has been endorsed by the RM as well as the CDC.
 
Currently the Community Development Corporation is working to complete a multi-year project to bring home an exhibit from the Smithsonian Institute show-casing the Metis culture by creating a rest stop that will encourage visitors to our community.
