"The JEDI Aboriginal Development Fund (JADF) is a tool that enables JEDI to promote economic development in the First Nation communities of New Brunswick. The JADF will provide funding to entrepreneurs/existing businesses and communities to support business and community economic development planning. Please note that this is a pilot project with limited funding, and applications will be assessed on a first come, first serve basis."
"JEDI achieves this goal by fostering unique partnerships. These efforts have resulted in one-of-a kind relationships with community Economic Development Officers (EDOs) in each First Nations community in New Brunswick as well as representatives of key organizations and businesses. JEDI seeks to bring people together to achieve tangible results. Some of the ways JEDI does this includes: The JEDI Plenary; Communications; Networking Opportunities; Facilitating Meetings Regarding Economic Development Opportunities".
"The five First Nation communities in Cape Breton, Unama’ki in the Mi’kmaq language (pronounced Una Mauki), have formed a unique economic partnership and established a collaborative approach to economic development that is becoming recognized across Canada. They recognized the importance of taking a business approach to pursuing economic opportunities and the importance of partnering with business and governments. This office is the result."
