Misty Isles Economic Development Society (MIEDS) was established in 2008 following the initialing of the Land Use Plan. An economic development body, representing the communities of Masset, Port Clements, Queen Charlotte, Sandspit, and Area D, became a necessity to enable coordinated efforts between island communities and pursue joint economic development activities.

Economic development accords were signed by the communities and the Haida Nation, and represent shared economic development priorities that provide direction in moving our island communities forward (Economic Development Accord & Economic Development Understanding).

The MIEDS board is currently composed of 5 representatives of the governing bodies of each of the island communities.

In 2009, invitations were extended to the Skidegate Band and Old Masset Village Councils to participate on the MIEDS board. This would result in complete islands-wide representation in the endeavour, as was the original intent. MIEDS is looking forward to working closely with the Haida Nation and the councils of Skidegate and Old Massett toward a more sustainable future.
