The Conseil de la coopération de l’Ontario (CCO) has signed a collaboration agreement with the Réseau de développement et d’employabilité (RDÉE) of Ontario. The two organizations will now coordinate their efforts for economic and social development in Francophone communities in Ontario.

“This agreement is certainly very promising for economic development for these communities,” said Denis Laframbroise, President of RDÉE Ontario. “Through this partnership, the two organizations will share their knowledge and respective expertise to optimize the results of their actions and to make more effective use of their resources.”

Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada had also signed a memorandum of understanding with the RDÉE in December 2014 to set up partnerships with several provincial and regional levels and to pool marketing and communications efforts.
