Capacity Building

Northern Development equips communities and businesses in its service region to invest in and improve human resources through a variety of funding programs: Economic Development Capacity Building, Grant Writing Support, First Nations Government Internship and Local Government Internship.

The Competitiveness Consulting Rebate, a business development program, supports a select group of local business owners and managers to participate in the Manufacturers’ Executive Council (MEC), a senior executive peer mentoring group that is led by a facilitator from Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME).
