Strategic Action Plan


The Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission (CEDC) unveiled its new Strategic Plan on October 16, 2014. Titled Transitioning to Growth, the new plan outlines the CEDC’s priorities for the next three years.

The plan is divided into seven themes:

● Entrepreneurship
● Business Retention and Expansion and Business Succession Planning
● Innovative Manufacturing
● Training and Educational Community
● Logistics and Supply Hub
● Social Enterprise, Information, Communications & Technology, Regional Food and Film
● Mining Readiness Strategy (MRS)

We are living in a period of unprecedented change because of evolving global competitive trading relationships. The Strategic Plan must therefore possess the built-in flexibility to allow for the allocation of critical resources to focus on the development of new sectors of opportunity as they evolve over the next 24 months.
