The Department has established a coordinated strategic framework to maximize participation by official-language minority communities in existing federal economic development programs and services. This framework integrates the government's Action Plan for Official Languages. Industry Canada and the four regional development agencies will continue to implement this plan in 2006–2007. In addition, work will continue on a major research effort on minority communities, and ongoing consultations will strengthen partnerships with them.
