Established in 1986, the Community Futures network consists of 269 Community Futures Development Corporations across Canada. Our local office is part of the provincial association with 34 offices throughout British Columbia.
Although part of a provincial and national network, Community Futures Shuswap, with an office in Salmon Arm, is here to support the emerging business and community-based needs of the North Okanagan-Shuswap region. We are an independent organization, locally governed by a board of directors who volunteer their time, energy, and expertise.
