British Columbia Economic Development Association - Event Information
BC Economic Development Week
Economic Development Week was first created by the BC Economic Development Association in 2012. Since that time, BC Governments have officially proclaimed BC Economic Development at our request - we are very grateful for their support of BCEDA and the work done by those involved in improving the economy in communities around BC. The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) launched the International Economic Development Week in 2016 to increase awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities, and improve the quality of life in communities everywhere. Over the span of three years, more than 450 campaigns have been created throughout the United States and Canada, creating millions of impressions, hundreds of news stories, blog entries, videos, events and other activities. Campaigns occurred in all 50 American states in 2018, with more than 40 communities officially proclaiming Economic Development Week. Since 2016, technology has opened new doors for creativity, which EDOs have taken advantage of by creating and sharing videos, infographics, banners, and many other types of materials which were spread far and wide on social media, websites, and in print.
The BC Economic Development Association looks forward to the partnership with other organizations across North America in celebrating a successful Economic Development Week.
