Community Futures Program

Program activity: Community and Business Development

Start date: 1986

End date: n/a (ongoing program)

Description: The Community Futures Program supports community economic development and builds the capacity of non-metropolitan communities in Ontario. FedDev Ontario administers and delivers the program within its geographic mandate. The program makes funding available through contribution agreements to Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDCs) in Ontario, who provide services relating to strategic community planning, socio-economic development, business services, repayable business financing through local investment funds, and community-based projects and special initiatives. CFDCs annual workplans align with the Community Futures Program's expected results. CFDCs make funding decisions based on the economic, social, cultural, environmental and other factors important to the community.

Expected Results: Communities in rural Ontario are viable and businesses in the region are competitive.

The data presented in this table are shown in millions of dollars.
