Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Community Economic Development (CED) is about working together as a community and with partners towards a diverse local economy that helps all of Sooke to thrive. It’s also about learning from all sectors of the community, and supporting local businesses, organizations, professionals, service providers and citizens. Council’s commitment to take action on climate change will drive community economic development in Sooke. We are striving for Low Carbon Resilience, and the achievement of social, economic and environmental co-benefits for all Sooke citizens.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the summer/fall 2021 development of the CED Strategy and Action Plan through the business Walk, telephone interviews, discussions about town, and surveys. We have posted an Engagement Summary here.
