    Economic Development is more broadly defined beyond economic welfare to include indicators such as literacy rates, life expectancy, poverty rates, leisure time, environmental quality, freedom, or social justice.



    Implementation of an effective Economic Development program requires a fundamental understanding of factors that create unique challenges and opportunities for leadership/program planners within the First Nations, Métis and Inuit context.



    Sustainable economic development requires resources for both entrepreneurship and business development that includes supportive leadership both politically and administratively.
