An ongoing commitment to small business

Community Futures has been providing rural entrepreneurs with the counselling, services and supports they need to establish and grow their businesses for over 30 years. In 2010/11 alone, Community Futures organizations in BC gave out 568  loans totalling $29.4 million, creating and maintaining 2,308 jobs. Because Community Futures is a developmental lender, we have a different approach than financial institutions, and may be able to provide loans to businesses that don’t qualify elsewhere.
