Why Community Futures?

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.

Program objectives

The internship program objectives are:

  • Increase capacity of Community Futures offices across the Northern Development service region
  • Stimulate economic growth through business development opportunities
  • Accelerate career growth for emerging professionals in business and economic development
  • Build opportunities for succession in the business development sector in the northern region
