Rules & Guidelines
- . EDEDA provides access to economic development opportunities regardless of race, creed, gender identity, marital status, family status, nationality, orientation or mental or physical disability. We offer affordable membership opportunities to encourage support of economic development, and also provide events, seminars and training initiatives open to the public who may have a less-focused business interest or be unable to pay membership fees. The above mandate is accomplished through specific, open, one-on-one interaction and inclusion in all of our public seminars, training, events and networking opportunities through our public groups and meetings. We provide access to all available resources we have to hand to our member businesses and individuals, as well as promote freely any networking, relationship-building or other support services to all our members in our community.
- In our public events, EDEDA creates a positive and supportive atmosphere in order to foster economic diversity, stability and development between businesses and between individuals. Inclusivity of all who attend our public groups and meetings, with a nurturing and supportive environment for all to develop their economic vision, is paramount.
- Any discriminatory, intimidating, bullying or other derogatory behaviour, writing or speech, whether against a member of EDEDA, an individual attempting to obtain economic development for themselves or others, or a member of the general public that is posted publicly on our page(s), is strictly prohibited. Such language, action, word, deed or written posting is grounds for immediate removal of said posting from any public group or page(s) connected to EDEDA. Our mandate is to support with positivity our member businesses, local humanitarian groups and individuals in their search for economic well-being and stability.
