Community Planning

USDC staff attend community meetings and work with other organizations to support local community economic development initiatives, other youth programs and community infrastructure projects. Some past examples include the Eagle Down Walking Trail in Hazelton project and the formation of the Hazelton Wolverines Senior Mens AA Hockey Club. 

Volunteer Income Tax Program

Each year USDC staff assist with income tax preparation for residents who are pensionable or receiving disability benefits.

Referrals to Other Government Services

USDC provides CPP, Birth Certificate and Social Insurance Number replacement applications and makes referrals to other government agencies and programs throughout the north.

Community Economic Development

We design and administer community projects which provide training opportunities. By submitting proposals which partially utilize government funded programs, USDC is able to support local economic growth and revitalization projects. We work collectively with Community Economic Development (CED) partners through a local group called the HUB. Some project examples that USDC initiated include the Senden Sustainable Agriculture Resource Centre Job Creation Project and the Job Opportunities Program, Telegraph Trail Restoration Project. In 2005, USDC successfully accessed funding for a local Labour Market analysis. The plan created by this project is the blue print for USDC project and partnership development in the community. Copies of the plan are available to the public at the Centre and the Library

Senden Sustainable Agriculture Resource Centre

A community resource owned by USDC, revitalized and partially funded by local partners and government to create a demonstration model for local food production and food security. The Centre is designed to be a regional resource for the development of the agriculture sector and a training and education facility for all ages.
