The Edmonton Community Development Company (ECDC) strives to deliver projects that align with a community’s needs and priorities. By engaging directly with residents and businesses, the ECDC can understand an area’s unique challenges and opportunities.
Within Edmonton, there are communities with a high percentage of empty lots, boarded-up businesses, and derelict properties due to social issues such as poverty, homelessness, and crime. The ECDC’s goal is to serve these neighbourhoods and keep their aspirations in mind when developing the community.
While the organization exists for the whole of Edmonton, our current projects are in the central neighbourhoods, notably Alberta Avenue, Eastwood, McCauley, and Parkdale.
