ECDV 301 - Community Economic Development
What role does economic development play in Yukon communities? What do new business owners need to think about when designing and developing their ventures? What considerations are specific to Yukon?
In this course, we will use a community focused approach to examine how an entrepreneur might develop a Yukon market business idea. Students will analyze basic dynamics of community and regional development while exploring the relationships between economic, political, social and cultural development. We will consider local market dynamics (including third and barter/or alternative economies), importing and exporting, and the importance and implications of working with First Nations governments and various other First Nation organizations.
