FedNor recognizes that Francophone communities are important for the overall and economic well-being of Northern Ontario.

FedNor supports these vibrant communities through its regular programs and through the Government of Canada’s Economic Development Initiative ( EDI ) for Official Language Minority Communities in Northern Ontario. Through this initiative, funding is available for activities related to business and economic development that encourage growth in Northern Ontario's Francophone communities.
