Community Economic Development (CED)

South Lake CFDC partners with municipalities, first nations and other community organizations in projects designed to enhance, and or improve, the local communities, the overall climate for local business and build the community’s overall economic capacity. The various projects we engage in are a result of a wider community consultation which results in the development of a Community Economic Development Strategic Plan.  This plan is reviewed on an ongoing basis and renewed every three to four years.  A copy of the Executive Summary of the current plan (2010-2013) can be downloaded below.   
CED projects may range from the development of key infrastructures, to skills development, to other key community needs such as health care, recreation and general quality of life.  The process assists in improving our communities, forging strong local partnerships and developing strong, community minded volunteers.
South Lake CFDC has the capacity to assist by providing funds, project management, volunteer leadership or administrative support.  South Lake CFDC has the capacity to bring federal government support to certain types of projects.  South Lake CFDC can also serve as an information source on a variety of activities in other communities.
