Funding: Enabling Fund for Official Language Minority Communities

Grants and Contributions projects affected by COVID-19

Please contact your funding representative if your project is affected by COVID-19.

The Enabling Fund aims to enhance the development and vitality of official language minority communities (OLMCs). Generally, these communities consist of Francophones who reside outside of Quebec or English-speaking residents of Quebec.

The Fund supports the economic and human resource development of OLMCs through the activities of national and regional organizations and by engaging community leaders and encouraging partnerships.

Application Information


Funding is provided to not-for-profit organizations that provide leadership in economic and human development matters on behalf of the OLMCs in their respective province or territory.

These organizations are part of two networks:

  1. The Réseau de développement économique et d’employabilité (RDÉE), composed of RDÉE Canada (the national coordinating body) and 12 provincial/territorial organizations in Francophone and Acadian communities; and
  2. The Community Economic Development and Employability Corporation (CEDEC) for English-speaking communities in Quebec.
