The ECDC is a non-profit organization that partners with communities to strengthen their neighbourhood through social and economic development. 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.

Continuous communication is key

Using various communication tools and channels, they strive to keep communities informed of their work in their neighbourhoods in the name of enabling trust and inclusion.

Conversations lead to ideas

To create the impact community members want and deserve, the ECDC needs to meet people, talk with them, and listen to their aspirations and pain.

Transparency enables trust

The ECDC does the best they can to design, create, and manage (or co-manage) projects that include community members in the process.
