First nation-municipal updates

We are launching Phase 3!


We are very happy to announce the launch of CEDI Phase 3!

Our extremely successful Stronger Together approach will continue to guide us as we welcome eight new First Nation – municipal partnerships from across Canada to participate in the program. We are seeking representation from as many areas of the country as possible. To achieve this, we are piloting a new regional approach, starting in British Columbia and Quebec, where two partnerships will be selected in each of these provinces. Also new for Phase 3, we are offering two program streams: a three-year standard participation and a two-year accelerated option.

In Phases 1 and 2, many projects focused on the following thematic areas: land use planning, infrastructure and service agreements, inclusive regional economic development and Indigenous procurement. We expect this to still be the case in Phase 3, but other areas of collaboration are also possible.

The application deadline is October 22nd, 2021.

See more information here.

We look forward to receiving your applications!

The CEDI Team


What are the benefits of a CEDI partnership?

Here are some of the potential benefits for your community:

  • A stronger, united voice for engaging with businesses and other levels of government.
  • Increased ability to access funding from other levels of government.
  • Cost savings and more efficient program and/or service delivery.
  • More opportunities for local business development and jobs.
  • Ability to leverage the unique financial, human and physical resources of each partner.
  • Coordinated planning efforts to improve land use, land management and environmental/resource protection.

Looking back at Phase 2
