Community  Economic Development Plan & Tourism plan

Community Economic Development Plan

The District of Mackenzie is currently undertaking a community economic development planning project that will help shape the future of our community, and we need your input!

Community Economic Development Plan Overview

The goal of this project is to develop a roadmap for creating a diverse, vibrant local economy. The Community Economic Development Strategy will clearly outline actions and strategies towards building an environmentally and financially sustainable local economy centred on diversity and inclusion.

Over the last several months, we’ve heard from you and tackled questions like “What strengths do we have that we should build on?” “What can we do to attract people and businesses?” “What kind of jobs and training opportunities will we have in the future?”


We’ve taken your ideas and feedback and are now in the final stages of drafting our Strategy. The Plan-on-a-Page is a summary of the vision, objectives, strategy areas and actions that will be detailed in our final Community Economic Development Strategy.
