Our history

Community Futures Thompson Country (CFTC) is part of a national economic development program that has been supporting small business and community economic development since 1985 in BC.  CFTC has been serving the area since 1987!

We are a community based economic renewal initiative, helping residents to start or expand a business and to assist in sustaining and improving our community and local economy.

CFTC is a non-profit organization guided by a volunteer board of directors and staffed with business professionals. Our volunteers and staff work with community partners to develop and implement community-based economic development strategies.

We are staffed with a team of professionals that provide a wide array of different business and community economic development services – including business loans, entrepreneurship development, training and coaching, and access to other expert resources – to people wanting to start, expand, franchise or sell a business, and to owners of small and medium sized businesses in the community.  We believe these services are in place to strengthen and diversify our local economy.

We also work in partnership with other business lenders, educational institutions, not-for-profits, and community governments to grow and diversify our local economy.
