OACFDC Entrepreneur Photo 009In addition to working with entrepreneurs to create successful, sustainable small businesses in rural Ontario, we also focus on the larger communities in which these businesses operate.

We work alongside community leaders and other key stakeholders to create Community Economic Development plans and implement projects that support value-added activity and expansion into new sectors.

Some examples of how we can support communities include:

  • Economic development planning
  • Strategic planning
  • Project planning and project management
  • Training and resource sharing
  • Connections to expertise

If your community has a desire to grow and/or diversify, contact your nearest Community Futures office to explore ideas for working together.
