Western Francophone Economic Development Fund

The objective of the Fonds de développement économique francophone de l’Ouest (FDEFO) is to foster and financially support endogenous economic development through projects designed and carried out by Western Canada’s Official Language Minority Communities (OLMCs).

The FDEFO program is administered by the CÉCS and each OFVE acts as financial agent in its respective province.
