Community Futures (CFs) take a grassroots approach to community and economic development and are primarily focused on creating jobs outside major urban centres.
There are 90 CFs across Western Canada. They are non-profit corporations run by volunteer boards of directors, supported by salaried staff.
The mandate of the corporations is community and business development. Each CF delivers a variety of services ranging from strategic economic planning, technical and advisory services to businesses, loans to small and medium-sized businesses, self-employment assistance programs, and services targeted to youth and entrepreneurs with disabilities.
The Community Futures Network of Canada website is your gateway to nearly 300 Community Economic Development Centres across Canada. This network works together to foster entrepreneurship and community economic development in rural areas of western Canada.
Our Western Canada Business Service Network database can help you find the CF office closest to you. The CF addresses are listed by province. Please select the province of your choice:
