Guide to starting a CEDB

Publication type: 

The Community Economic Development Business (CEDB) program is a method for Islanders to invest in economic development within their community. Through the program, an eligible business - approved and registered as a CEDB - may obtain equity financing in the PEI through a specified issue of shares. The government provides an income tax credit to eligible investors who purchase shares of the CEDB.

This guide describes the CEDB program and is intended to assist members of communities interested in developing a CEDB.
