    The EDCO Bright Ideas Competition officially launched at the 62nd Annual Conference and Showcase in Toronto, ON. 

    Jason Dias, Bright Ideas Committee Member and Past-Chair of the EDCO Young Professionals Network explained "the Bright Ideas Competition is your chance to solve some of economic development’s biggest challenges, embark on a journey of learning, explore new solutions and experience what it’s like to work with like-minded colleagues from across the province."

    During the competition, economic development practitioners will work in teams to explore local economic development issues, tackle the issues and present their innovative ideas, giving an additional resource to EDCO members.

    The Economic Developers Association of Canada will award 5 certification points to participating individuals and the finalist teams will gain recognition by presenting at #EDCO2020 conference in Toronto.

    To register, visit www.edco.on.ca/Bright-Ideas. The cost to participate is $25 per person.
