CCEDNet Responds to Manitoba Budget 2013
Across Manitoba, CED initiatives foster economic revitalization, access to capital, local ownership of resources, labour market development, poverty reduction, social development, and environmental stewardship. Despite the proven impact of the CED approach, communities continue to lack the level of support they need from all levels of government. The Province of Manitoba must take an active role in providing that support. The latest provincial budget, tabled on April 16th, brought surprising new investments in some areas and underwhelming progress in others. The following is an analysis of how Budget 2013 responded to CCEDNet - Manitoba’s pre-budget submission that called on the Province to implement our member-endorsed policy resolutions.
CCEDNet's response is categorized under important CED topics, including:
- Poverty Reduction
- Child Care
- Social Enterprise
- Local Development & Food Procurement
- Ethical Procurement
