Our History

Community Futures is a community-based economic renewal initiative, established by the Federal Government in 1985. Our main objectives are to help rural Canadians start or expand a business and to help sustain and improve communities and their local economies.

Since 1985, CFs have collectively assisted more than 119,800 entrepreneurs, influenced over 495,800 jobs and injected over $4.2 billion directly into the rural Canadian economy. Each of Community Futures’ 267 offices is led by a local board of directors who volunteer their time, knowledge, and passion to guide a team of professional staff in providing a wide array of business and community economic development services.
