The Economic Developers Association of Manitoba (EDAM) streamlines communication and ensures contact and liaison within the economic development profession across the province. We were formed in 1993 as an independent, non-profit, incorporated association of professionals who were directly engaged in economic development in Manitoba.
EDAM is one of several regional and provincial affiliates of the Economic Developers Association of Canada (EDAC), the national professional organization of economic development practitioners. Through our affiliation with other provincial associations and EDAC, EDAM links its membership to a national network of associations across Canada.
Please take a look around our site and get to know us a bit better. And feel free to contact us for more info about our organization.
