    This article describes and analyzes the Reseau de Developpement Economique et d'Employabilite de la Francophonie Canadienne (RDEE), a large pan-Canadian network established to support economic development for Francophone minority communities in Canada. The study analyzes the organizational and relational structures of the organizations devoted to supporting minority economic development in Canada and compares their relative importance in different regional contexts. Finally, it discusses whether RDEE responds to economic necessities and whether it uses recognized economic practices and strategies, while considering the political context behind these initiatives.
