Putting CED in the 2013 federal budget
In response to the federal government's invitation for pre-budget submissions, CCEDNet has recently submitted a list of recommendations to bring a CED perspective into the 2013 budget. Our submission, which was sent to the Standing Committee on Finance, outlines how community economic development helps sustain economic recovery and enhance economic growth. CCEDNet includes recommendations for how the federal government can support community enterprises that contribute to job creation and economic productivity. Our brief also explains how CED approaches can help navigate the challenges of skill shortages in Canadian communities. All pre-budget submissions, including CCEDNet's will be available on the Finance Committee's website, once they have been translated.
