Ottawa CED Network Membership Options
Become a member of the Ottawa CED Network!
Membership is free!
Join an ever-growing network of people who believe that
there is a place for people with low incomes, people with
disabilities, people with mental health issues, First Nation
peoples, youth and other people struggling with poverty and
social and economic isolation.
CED PRACTITIONERS are people involved in CED on a variety
of levels (volunteer, executive, front line) and in a variety
of functions (human resource development, finance, marketing).
Examples of CED practitioners include a business advisor
in a micro-lending program, the CEO of a housing cooperative
and a front-line worker with new immigrants. CED Practitioners
have an intimate understanding of the principles of CED and
the potential impact of CED as an alternative approach to
social and economic development.
MEMBERS are organizations and individuals committed to improving
the lives of low-income and marginalized people. Members
support local community economic development through the
provision of services, credit, financial savings, education
PRACTITIONER MEMBERS and MEMBERS are enthusiastic about
expanding the scale and effectiveness of Community Economic
Development (CED) in the Ottawa area. CED Practitioners and
Members are encouraged to actively participate in the activities
of the Network and to contribute to the realization of its
mission. Members receive all privileges associated with the
Network. Each member (whether an organization or individual)
may join the Network's list-serve and receive quarterly newsletters.
