Community Economic Development (CED)

Community Economic Development is a process by which the public sector, business, and community partners work together to make their region a better place to both work and live. CED integrates social, cultural, and environmental dimensions into decisions to ensure the right conditions for economic growth and job opportunities.

The Wellington-Waterloo Community Futures is actively involved with the local interest groups that are responsible for making decisions for economic growth. We are working to assist with:

  • effective and regular communication between business, government, and community groups
  • properly maintained infrastructure
  • access to training and development opportunities
  • community enthusiasm and commitment
 

How Can the CED Help You?

The WWCF can assist with the following:

  • Socio-Economic research, analysis, and report writing
  • Strategic planning
  • Facilitation (developing a vision, goals, objectives, and timelines)
  • Research to secure funding and proposal writing
  • Provide recommendations on CED opportunities
  • Act as liaison between local organizations, business and representatives of government and industry
