RE: JOINT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INITIATE (JEDI) ECONOMIC LEAKAGE STUDY OF INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES IN THE PROVINCE OF NEW BRUNSWICK
Eel River Bar First Nation is participating in a major project to help identify opportunities for our community to grow and to create jobs. This project will review where we buy our goods and services and if there is an opportunity then to create new businesses within the community or assist your business for you purchases and development needs.
We are working with JEDI and the Duggan International Group, an Aboriginal company, to conduct what is referred as a “leakage study”.
We need your participation to make the project a success for our community and for the Province of New Brunswick. They have created an online survey for you to answer accurately to the best of your knowledge. The survey will ask you the kinds of things you purchase and where and how much you spend. The person who answers the survey should be your book keeper, accountant, general manager, etc.
The survey should take no longer than 25 minutes. This information will be confidential. Participation is voluntary but your cooperation in will ensure this project benefits all members of our community.
Once you complete the survey, you will have the opportunity to win a $100 gift card. Please follow the instructions at the end of the survey.
