Welcome to Community Futures Eastern Ontario. Our role is to represent the network of 14 participating Community Futures Development Corporations in Eastern Ontario and to act as their regional voice. These CFDCs are part of the Community Futures Program (CFP), a community driven economic development initiative designed to assist rural areas. We hope this information helps visitors learn more about our organization and the regional initiatives we manage.

The CFDCs are funded through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. Our Eastern Ontario network also works collaboratively with other partners across the region.

We are governed by a Board of Directors and managed by experienced professionals. We work to strengthen the area’s regional economy by supporting innovation, business growth and community capacity.

Business services for Francophone entrepreneurs are available upon request.
