The EDA Ministry Dinner

The annual EDA Ministry Dinner is an opportunity for approximately 120 community economic development professionals and key government officials to network, to share information and to explore potential partnerships. This event is unique as it follows an interactive format. Throughout the dinner, several participants change tables at the beginning of each course of their meal. This maximizes the opportunities for government representatives and community economic development  professionals to  share information about various programs and opportunities. By providing key decision makers with the forum to connect, it aligns with one of EDA’s strategic priorities to equip our province’s economic development professionals with the most current resources and opportunities.
