Welcome to the South Peace Economic Development Commission website. The South Peace Economic Development Commission (SPEDC) is a commission established by the municipalities and rural areas of the South Peace region of the Peace River Regional District. We are formally supported by the municipalities of Pouce Coupe, Dawson Creek, Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge, as well as Area 'D' and 'E' of the Peace River Regional District.
Our website is a one-stop shop for all information on the South Peace region and its municipalities. The information provided here covers everything of importance and relevance to what makes the South Peace a significant region. The website covers multiple subject areas for each community as well as our unincorporated hamlets - everything one would want to know about our region and its defining characteristics.
We hope that by providing this valuable amount of information on our website it will have a three part effect. The first effect is to help showcase our economic development strategies with major emphasis on our investment readiness. The second will be attracting more provincial, national and international business into our region. The final effect is attracting more skilled workers and their families to the South Peace.
