Community Futures is part of a national economic development program that has been supporting small business and community economic development since 1986.  There are 269 Community Futures offices in rural communities across the country, with 34 of those in BC. 8 offices serve Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.

Our Community Futures office is a non-profit organization guided by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed with business professionals. We work with community partners to help foster entrepreneurship and economic development in our region.

We provide a variety of different support services to people wanting to start, expand, franchise or sell a business in the community. For more detailed information about all we do, please see our services page.

We also work in partnership with other business lenders, educational institutions, not-for-profits and community governments to grow and diversify our local economy. We are completely focused on the needs of our clients, our local businesses, and our area’s economy.

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