About the Project
The Community Action for Workforce Development program is an initiative funded by the Government of Canada through the Community Workforce Development Program that pilots intersectional, community-led workforce planning models in three rural communities across Canada that support economic diversification strategies that take action on climate change and contribute to clean growth. In each community, the process engages small and medium enterprises from a range of industries and sectors as well as relevant community-based organisations and public agencies in community workforce planning, training and work placements in order to provide upskilling and reskilling training, wrap-around supports and work placements.
The Canadian Community Economic Development Network (CCEDNet) is a values-based, non-profit association committed to connecting people and ideas for action that builds local economies, strengthens communities, and benefits everyone. We have members throughout Canada, including organisations, networks, and individuals who are strengthening sustainable and equitable local economies. Members are active across many sectors such as community development, social enterprise, rural development, co-operative development, employment development, and housing.
We are committed to the values of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Dignity, Self-Determination, Solidarity, and Local Control. Together, we are working towards sustainable and inclusive communities directing their own social, environmental, and economic futures through our Theory of Change.
CCEDNet is working with the following community partners to complete this project:
Community Futures Lesser Slave Lake, Town of Slave Lake, Alberta
Golden Community Economic Development, Town of Golden, British Columbia
Community Data Program (CDP)
CDP is preparing a rural community workforce development data portal for all municipalities across Canada to provide secondary data that can support these communities in developing their own workforce development plans and enacting a similar project.

Is your organization already part of a Data Consortium? Register as an individual user and find out more about the CDP.
Do you represent a member organization that needs to renew their membership? Do it online.
If a Consortium already exists in your community, you can join an existing Consortium as a Member Organization.
If there's no Consortium in your community, we encourage you to start one! It's a great way to access small-area data, bring together local groups, and join the Canada-wide CDP network.
