WHAT WE DO
The Community Futures Network of British Columbia is the only community-driven, non-profit business loan and business development organization made up of 34 Community Futures offices throughout rural British Columbia.
Community Futures Network of British Columbia is mandated to support small business development and rural economic diversification in British Columbia. We actively work with community and business leaders to foster rural economic growth and are partners in building vibrant and sustainable communities.
Different than a bank, Community Futures uses alternate lending criteria, focusing on rural development and providing business financing to small local businesses.
We are funded by the Government of Canada through Western Economic Diversification Canada and have been supporting rural entrepreneurs for over 35 years.
Each of our 34 Community Futures offices provides flexible and affordable small business loans, business coaching/training services, and business management tools for people wanting to start, expand, franchise or sell a rural business.
