Welcome to the Joint Economic Development Initiative
The Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) is a leading Indigenous organization dedicated to working with partners to foster Indigenous economic development in New Brunswick. Founded in 1995 as a tripartite partnership, JEDI provides its clients with a variety of Indigenous business and workforce development services. JEDI serves Indigenous people across New Brunswick and works closely with partners in the public and private sector.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve adapted to a new way of doing business and supporting you. The health and safety of our staff, clients, and community are our top priorities, therefore, we have temporarily closed our physical office to all external parties unless you have an appointment. The JEDI staff will continue to deliver the highest level of service to our clients either by phone, email or other online means.
