Community Futures moves all its operations to Campbell River

Community Futures Stratchcona makes a strategic move this spring

Community Futures Stratchcona makes a strategic move this spring.

The organization will be moving its entire operating base to one location in Campbell River to realign operations and better serve its region stretching from Fanny Bay to Sayward and west to Gold River and Tahsis.

Up to March of this year, Community Futures Strathcona (CFS) had locations in both the Comox Valley and Campbell River. CFS General Manager, Marc Crane says, “The decision to maintain one centre effectively galvanizes our strengths and consolidates services which stretch to a broad geographic region.

“Over the years, advancing technology reduced the need for two locations. Focusing on services, rather than on maintaining infrastructure, is a win-win situation for CFS and for making services more accessible to emerging businesses and community projects in the region.”

Crane went on to say that generating development and growth of entrepreneurship and community projects continues to be the mandate of CFS which has, since its inception, provided over 900 loans to businesses in the region that have created and maintained over 3,000 jobs.

As well, CFS has been instrumental in the growth of major non-profit initiatives in arts and culture as well as in other sectors in the region.

CFS is a registered corporation governed by a volunteer board of directors and is part of a network of Community Futures offices across Canada established in 1985 to provide communities with services ranging from business development loans, technical support, training and information, strategic planning processes and support of a diverse range of community economic development projects.
