Stronger Together: Joint First Nations–Municipal Community Economic Development Toolkit
What is the Stronger Together Toolkit?
The Stronger Together Toolkit shares the experiences and lessons learned from 16 communities that are part of the joint First Nations-municipal Community Economic Development Initiative(CEDI), a pilot program delivered by FCM and Cando.
Who should use the Stronger Together Toolkit?
First Nations and municipal elected officials and staff who want to strengthen their relationships with their neighbours and engage in joint planning for community economic development. The Toolkit can also be used by community members and organizations such as tribal councils, chambers of commerce, provincial and territorial associations, treaty commissions and regional economic development agencies.
Why a toolkit?
While plenty of planning tools are available, there are few resources on how First Nations and municipalities can collaborate.
