In Business Together
RDÉE Canada, the Community Economic Development and Employability Corporation (CEDEC), and the main federal economic development departments and agencies, under the leadership of Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), form a collaborative governance structure, whose objective is to ensure participation by all key economic development players in Official Language Minority Communities (OLMCs). It is called the Economic Action Network (EAN).
The EAN is in charge of implementing the Framework for the Canadian Plan for Economic Development of Official Language Minority Communities (OLMCs).
The EAN communicates its steps forward and is calling on Canadian entreprises to get involved with it and create jobs and grow the Canadian economy via its website: In Business Together.
The Economic Action Forum
The EAN organized its first Economic Action Forum, which brought together more than 150 leaders from businesses and communities across the country.
Attendees were able to participate in workshops, share best practices, exchange and obtain tools to better understand emerging trade trends, the added value of bilingualism, the importance of sustainable development, skills development, and travel and tourism development, in order for small and medium-sized enterprises to be able to seize opportunities to access international markets and benefit from business opportunities that arise.
