The Trust’s Economic Development Capacity Building program helps to boost economic development capacity in municipalities and regional districts

Economic Development Capacity Building funding is provided annually to boost economic development capacity in municipalities and regional districts throughout central and northern British Columbia.

This program provides up to a $50,000 rebate annually to each municipality and regional district in Northern Development’s service region. At least $5,000 of the annual funding must be used to fund a collaborative economic development project with another municipality, regional district, First Nations band, tourism or industry association.
