Welcome to the Chesterfield Inlet 2023 Community Economic Development Survey! We appreciate you taking the time to complete a brief but important survey. Your feedback will be used in the development of a 5 Year Plan for Community Economic Development in Chesterfield Inlet.

We would like to hear your ideas, hopes and aspirations for increasing your local socio-economic development opportunities over the next 5 years. We (CES) have been contracted to objectively develop a Community Economic Development plan, referred to as Chesterfield Inlet 2023 that will set direction for a 5-year vision of community economic development in Chesterfield Inlet by meeting with various stakeholders like you. Our goal is to create a community-based approach to responsible economic development that puts the community first and respects cultural values and traditions.

Socio-economic development is a process that identifies both the social and economic needs within a community and seeks to create strategies that will address those needs in ways that are practical and in the best interests of the community over the long run.

The most important step in conducting this study is hearing your thoughts and ideas; therefore we are requesting you to conduct a brief online survey.The stakeholder consultation engages the use of this website to seek important feedback from you. Your feedback is an important part of this process and is greatly appreciated.

We will be hosting a Community Open House (dates to be confirmed) where a CES Team Member will share more information about the project, challenges and opportunities related to sustainable economic development, and how you can become involved. CES will also be available to visit community offices and to meet with leadership and industry representatives to conduct one-on-one interviews.
