About us

The Conseil économique et coopératif de la Saskatchewan (CÉCS) is the voice for economic development in the francophone community, for which it has been responsible since 1947. The CÉCS offers a wide range of programs and services to meet needs and challenges identified by the francophone community.

By being proactive, the CÉCS has been able to position itself to advantage in the area of francophone economic development and, in doing so, to create interest among other economic stakeholders on the provincial, national and international scenes.

To better target francophone needs, the CÉCS has 5 offices in Saskatchewan: Moose Jaw, Bellevue, Zenon Park, Regina and Saskatoon.

CÉCS actions are based on the following values:

  • Collective responsibility
  • Teamwork
  • Integrity
  • Community commitment
  • Communication
  • Competency
  • Quality

The dynamic CÉCS team provides services and programs to the francophone community that focus on 3 specific areas:


Stimulating the creation, development, and expansion of Francophone businesses in Saskatchewan.


Encouraging individuals, businesses, and communities to capitalize on the economic potential of their region.


Supporting communities to organize and take control of community economic development.

Through its membership in the Réseau de développement économique et d’employabilité (RDÉE), the CÉCS is able to make a wealth of services available to the province’s Francophone communities.

Whether it is sharing best practices, raising awareness of entrepreneurship, or supporting and increasing employability, RDÉE Saskatchewan (CÉCS) can contribute to the success of your business or to the development of your community.
