Thunder Bay CEDC is seeking public input for the 2023-2026 strategic plan
May 19, 2022 – Today the Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission (CEDC) launched a local campaign to engage the public and community partners in providing guidance and feedback on the future of Thunder Bay’s economy with opportunities to influence the direction of the CEDC’s 2023-2026 Strategic Plan.
“The CEDC and Tourism Thunder Bay team are dedicated to building economic growth and tourism in Thunder Bay, and we recognize that many stakeholders share the same passion for people, place and prosperity,” says CEO Eric Zakrewski.
“To ensure our strategic plan is as diverse as the community and partners we serve, we will be asking Indigenous Communities, business owners, industry, investors, associations, institutions and the public-at-large to provide us with their perspectives and guidance so we can ensure the CEDC and its resources are focused on the right priorities. More than ever, the time is right for the CEDC to have a bold vision and plans for the future of Thunder Bay. We hope the community feels the same and will share their direction with us”, states Zakrewski.
There will be many opportunities to provide feedback; the CEDC has launched a dedicated public website and an online survey on the City of Thunder Bay’s Get Involved page. The survey will be available until June 15th, 2022. CEDC will also host two in-person events for citizens to have the opportunity to interact with CEDC staff directly. The CEDC will be at:
- Thunder Bay Country Market on June 4 from 8 am – 1 pm
- Good & Co Market on June 11 from 10 am – 2 pm
The plan engagement work will culminate with a Community Leaders Luncheon event in late June that will be attended by a diverse group of CEOs, Community and Indigenous leaders, business owners and the CEDC Board of Directors.
