This article describes and analyzes the Réseau de Développement Économique et d’Employabilité de la Francophonie Canadienne (RDÉE), 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 RDÉE responds to economic necessities and whether it uses recognized economic practices and strategies, while considering the political context behind these initiatives.
