Community Futures Business and Entrepreneurship Fund

Community Futures' Business and Entrepreneurship Fund provides up to $5000 in funding for projects that directly support job creation and economic diversification in the North Cariboo region. Examples include projects that result in:

  • The replacement of goods and/or services that are being purchased from outside of the region with locally-sourced goods and/or services,
  • Export opportunities for local business,
  • Increased tourism/visitor revenues,
  • New revenues and/or cost savings for business, and/or
  • Increased business and entrepreneurial skills.

Projects will also be evaluated for the extent to which they provide marketing or promotional opportunities for Community Futures training, counseling, and loans programs. Examples of potential marketing opportunities include:

  • Presentations and/or relationship building opportunities with potential business clients and key influencers - i.e. banks; accountants; bookkeepers; lawyers; real-estate agents; Quesnel Downtown Association; South Quesnel Business Association; West Quesnel Business Association; Quesnel and District Chamber of Commerce; and First Nations groups.
  • Advertising/promotional recognition - i.e. published articles; signage; events; social media.

Some examples of past projects include:

  • North Cariboo Agricultural Marketing Association for their Agricultural Awareness and Marketing Project and Ag LEAP
  • Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce for their 2015 and 2016 Home and Outdoor Adventure Show
