Integrated Economic Solutions Inc. (IES) is committed to challenging the current thinking and program approach to building local economies:
We believe that small municipalities and First Nation administrations are in a unique position to integrate economic solutions into the broader pillars of community development;
We believe in challenging the traditional models of industrial development and place marketing as an approach to economic development;
We believe in applying our process to create an inside-out integrated economic solutions based framework to development;
We believe an integrated economic framework to development has the opportunity to reinvigorate not only the economic value of a community but revive current capacities to promote and create a different kind of prosperity for its citizens; and
We believe that an integrated framework to development can provide an anchor solution to local economies.
