YO! News December 19, 2014
Dear Community Members, We are writing to you to introduce the k’awat'si Economic Development Corporation (KEDC). While some of you may have already heard about this organization in the community through friends or family, we are relatively new. The KEDC was created as a result of strong community desire to grow opportunities that will bring in revenue, prosperity, skills and development to the community. The KEDC is a distinct entity that reports directly to the Chief and Council. Over the course of the next month, we hope that you’ll have time to answer a few questions about your understanding of the KEDC and the best ways we can communicate with you. We want to understand how the community has come to know about the organization, what they believe it does within the community, and how people hope to communicate with the KEDC. Some of you may have answered a quick survey at our community holiday event, if you did so already, thank you. If you have time over the holiday, please click on the link below – or visit the Gwa'sala'Nakwaxda'xw Facebook page where this link will also be posted – where we will ask you a few short questions about KEDC and how you want to hear from us. Once you complete the survey we will enter you into a contest to win round trip flights to Vancouver and tickets to a Canucks game. The draw will take place early in January 2015.
