As part of the EDRP project, 10 teams of economic development volunteers, including representatives of EDA, BCEDA and IEDC visited flood-impacted communities to evaluate the state of their economies post-flood. The Teams are currently developing a list of recommendations that will help better position these communities for the short and long term.
"It was great to participate EDRP. Exceptionally well organized and I know as a group of professional economic developers from Alberta and BC we made a difference. It was a honour to be a volunteer." -David Pattison, Morinville, AB
