Municipal Economic Development Index (MEDI) Webinar

  • 21 Aug 2017
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Webinar

The Municipal Economic Development Index (MEDI) – the latest addition to Public Sector Digest's (PSD’s) suite of municipal benchmarking initiatives – contains various macroeconomic measurements to assist Canada's municipalities with their economic development activities. In order to stay competitive in attracting new talent, businesses, development and residents, communities must understand their economic advantages and disadvantages.

MEDI provides municipalities with real-time, accurate and comprehensive comparative data to assist with economic development planning and research. From population characteristics across communities, to a comparison of labour force distribution across occupations, MEDI’s data and advanced functionality can be used by the municipal economic development officer to bolster a communications campaign, inform a presentation to council, or directly support a marketing effort to bring new talent and business to your community. 

We are joined by guest speaker, Frank Miele, Academic Coordinator and Instructor Certificate in Local Economic Development Program. Frank has held senior leadership positions in six municipalities over his 35-year professional career. Frank is also a credentialed municipal manager through the Ontario Municipal Management Institute.
