Economic Development


Community Futures Parkland Inc.

Community Futures Parkland Inc. is a federally funded regional community economic development program.

Community Futures Parkland works with the communities of the Parkland, Manitoba in an attempt to achieve a cooperative environment within the region. This environment promotes leadership and supports individuals, businesses, organizations and communities through a coordinated strategic plan. It promotes economic growth, stability, business development, employment creation, a positive entrepreneurial environment and enhances quality of life.

Our programs are locally controlled and governed by a volunteer board of citizens from the Parkland.

Community Futures Parkland has a two fold mandate:

  1. Community Development (with projects such as the Parkland Career & Job Fair and Woman’s Wellness Workshop) and

  2. Business Development. We provide entrepreneurs with support and small business loans up to $150,000 when traditional financial institutions are unable to help. Loans are available for new business start-ups, business expansion, or to stabilize an existing business. We provide programming for youth, disabled and high-risk business ventures as well. It all starts with an idea!
