Established in 2017, the ECDC has been working in neighbourhoods where significant disinvestment has occurred. The core of our efforts is to anchor capital in a community by developing residential and commercial property.

The ECDC approaches community development with the following principles in mind:

Development is always about people

The ECDC believes that putting people’s needs, aspirations, and concerns first is the responsible approach to community development.

Research informs conversations

Often, community members do not have all the data or information they need to make informed decisions. The ECDC conducts research to help build a knowledge base throughout the community.

Communication is key

The ECDC uses various communication tools and channels to keep communities up-to-date about its work, such as social media, neighbourhood flyers, and local papers.

Conversations lead to ideas

Meeting residents and listening to their ideas and aspirations for their neighbourhood is essential to ensuring that the ECDC creates the impact community members want. 

Transparency enables trust

The ECDC is committed to community-based solutions that capture the spirit and passion of community members.
