Francophone Economic Development Organizations

In April 2001, Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) welcomed the four Francophone Economic Development Organizations (FEDOs) to the Western Canada Business Service Network. FEDOs enhance the vitality of minority language communities in Western Canada and assist in their economic development.

These independent entities have their own boards of directors with broad representation from their respective provinces. Board members are knowledgeable about business as well as the challenges facing francophone entrepreneurs.

Support from WD enables these regional organizations to provide enhanced services to Francophones including training, business and community economic development, access to capital, information services, marketing advice, networking and mentoring.

For more information contact the FEDO office in your province:
