Economic Disaster Recovery Program Update.

Work is ongoing with the Economic Disaster Recovery Project (EDRP). BCEDA is collaborating with the International Economic Development Council's (IEDC) Restore Your Economy and Economic Developers Alberta to create a toolkit designed to provide strategies and tactics for community leaders in their economic recovery efforts. It will incorporate useful information for convening private and public stakeholders to identify key economic recovery strategies; tips on how to navigate federal resources for response and recovery, and implementation of recovery initiatives. We plan to launch the EDRP Toolkit during the Fall of 2014.

In the meantime BCEDA is preparing recommendations to the Province of BC on Economic Disaster Recovery Programs.  We plan on submitting the recommendations in late August.
