Community Futures is the only organization throughout rural BC with a mandate for small business and community economic development. Our experts offer local assistance to entrepreneurs through five Community Futures offices located in the Kootenay region – Greater Trail, Central Kootenay in Nelson, Boundary in Grand Forks, East Kootenay in Cranbrook and Revelstoke. Part of a national network with 34 office in BC, Community Futures offers a variety of services and tools to help entrepreneurs and small business owners achieve their goals including business loans, support services, business planning advice and self-employment assistance.
Community Futures provides financing alternatives to small and medium enterprises when access to credit is a challenge to starting or growing their business. Different than a bank, Community Futures uses different lending criteria, focusing on rural development and providing business financing to small local businesses. We also work in partnership with other business lenders, educational institutions, not-for-profits and community governments to grow and diversify the local economy. Please drop by our booth to discuss you business needs.
