Community Economic Development

Community Futures plays a key role in strengthening and diversifying rural economies. 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. We also take a ‘big picture view’ of the health of our community’s businesses, and help with broad business retention and succession planning strategies.

If you require a facilitator for a Strategic Planning session or would like some assistance in the area of economic development, we may be able to help. We have assisted communities in the past with the following:

  • Worked with a town to update their Economic Development plan.
  • Facilitated discussions on joint Economic Development programs.
  • Hosted Economic Development seminars.
  • Hosted seminars on "Being an effective board member".
  • Hosted and organized one-day career and employment fairs
  • Worked as a facilitator or assistant in Strategic Planning meetings.
  • Attended meetings of Economic Development Committees and provide assistance as needed
  • Worked and provided assistance to Economic Development practitioners in the region.
  • Worked with municipalites to deliver Economic Development training and planning.
  • Worked with other Adult Education committees to offer seminars on Small Business issues.
  • Worked with a variety of partners on our NexStep project.

We also visit communities on a regular basis but would be happy to meet with your municipality at any time to discuss areas where we can help.
