    Administrative history

    The Conseil de développement économique de l'Alberta (CDEA), was founded in 1997 as the Chambre économique de l'Alberta. The name was changed on June 16, 2006 to avoid confusion with the Chamber of commerce.

    The CDEA is a not-for-profit organisation that assists Franco-Albertan communities by supporting local enterprises and electronic commerce, start-up cooperatives, and by providing business mentoring/coaching, presentations and training. The Conseil supports the development of community strategies, recruiting, promotion of French signage, tourism promotion on the Francophone markets, economic and community development based on partnerships, and support to youth integration in the economy. The Conseil's mission is to act as a mobilizing agent into the economic development of Francophone enterprises in Alberta, and its vision is to grow the economical contribution and prosperity of Francophones.

    The Conseil is administered by a management board and an executive team covering its various areas of activity. Mark Tremblay has served as chief executive officer since 2009. The Conseil has offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Bonnyville and Grande Prairie and is recognized by the Association canadienne-française de l'Alberta as a leader in the areas of business and entrepreneurship.
