ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WEEK
Join SEDA and the Saskatchewan First Nations Economic Development Network (SFNEDN) in celebrating a “remotely awesome” Economic Development Week May 4 to 9, 2020 and Indigenous Economic Development Day on May 4, 2020.
Not halfway into 2020 and this year is proving to be like nothing we have seen or experienced. It is taking us into uncharted territory at a community and business level. Yet the current situation reinforces the importance of the role of community and economic developers and the need for socio-economic resilient communities.
We celebrate Saskatchewan Community and Economic Developers! Here is an Infographic Tribute we developed several years ago.
