CEDI is implemented in partnership by the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers (Cando) and FCM. The initiative aims to improve the economic prosperity of First Nations and adjacent municipalities through joint community economic development planning and initiatives.

CEDI’s approach is to convene, listen and unite. CEDI gives First Nations and municipalities a chance to come together, learn from each other and work on common priorities, all while building respectful and sustainable government-to-government partnerships.

Knowledge products, tools and resources to support your First Nation-municipal partnership.
