Project Purpose
Dene Tha’ First Nation applied for and successfully received funding through the Lands and Economic Development Service Program (LEDSP). This funding will support the completion of a Strategic Economic Development Plan.

As part of the plan, we are engaging Nation members through interviews, community workshops and this survey.  This survey aims to collect input from Nation members on their economic challenges, priorities, opportunities and values.  This plan will guide the Nation in sustainable community economic development and will help in future decision making.

Why Participate?
Your perspective is valuable and important to understanding and defining the Nation’s economic values and interests, as well as actions that can be taken to support them.

Participation is voluntary and should take approximately 15 minutes of your time. In exchange for your participation you will be entered into a draw for a $100 gift card.  You can enter your name into the draw at the end of the survey.
