Our history

Community Futures is part of a national economic development program that has been supporting small business and community economic development since 1986.

Our Community Futures office is a non-profit organization guided by a volunteer board of directors and staffed with business professionals. Our volunteers and staff work with community partners to develop and implement community-based economic development strategies. 

We provide a variety of different support services to people wanting to start a business, and to owners of small- and medium-sized businesses in the community. 

We also work in partnership with other business lenders, educational institutions, not-for-profits and community governments to grow and diversify our local economy.

Community Futures is funded in western Canada by Western Economic Diversification Canada
