The Misty Isles Economic Development Society is advertising for a new economic development officer, following the sudden departure of former ec dev officer Heather Adel. MIEDS chair Andrew Merilees said Ms Adel did excellent work over the past several years but resigned for health reasons. “MIEDS was very happy with Heather’s advancement in economic development over the time she has been here,” he said. “She has done a great job.” Ms Adel’s last day at work was Aug. 22. MIEDS is now advertising across Canada and locally for a new person, but in the short term will be getting some help from the Northern Development Initiative Trust. The society is currently working on developing a community forest, among other initiatives, and also undertakes a lot of tourism marketing for Haida Gwaii.
