What is the Economic Development Strategic Plan (EDSP)?

The EDSP (Economic Development Strategy Project) is Heiltsuk's ongoing effort to identify economic opportunities aligned with community values. It involves creating feasibility studies, data analysis, and policy tools to support governance and project management. Through robust community engagement, the EDSP aims to shape a sustainable and prosperous future for the Heiltsuk Nation.
