A Community Economic Development Investment Fund (CEDIF) helps resourceful communities around Nova Scotia invest in local businesses. Since 1998 the CEDIF program has been helping to align the interests of Investors, Businesses and Government through tax incentives, access to low cost capital and the retention of investment in the region for the purpose of driving economic growth in Nova Scotia.
Over 50 businesses have registered under the CEDIF program collectively raising and investing over $40 million – CEDIFs are clearly an important part of Nova Scotia’s economic ecosystem.
