Over the past ten years, ICET has supported the transformation of the regional economy through local investment decisions based on regional priorities. These community success stories have laid the foundation for regional revitalization and economic growth, resulting in new businesses, jobs and promising new economic opportunities for our region.


We invite you to take a visual tour of how ICET projects have impacted the region in the last decade.


ICET held 10th Anniversary celebrations on June 16, 2016 to recognize, learn from, and thank the people who have brought the region’s projects to life. More than 150 stakeholders – funding recipients, First Nations, industry and business representatives, elected officials, and future project proponents – attended the event, making it a great success!

The day featured expert panels and speakers, including some of the people behind the region’s signature projects. Panelists shared insight on how to build a winning team, mobilize project champions, community members and volunteers, and how to secure funding from senior government, communities and the private sector.
