Our approach to financing small business works.
For Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses
Community Futures Cowichan is here to support you through COVID-19.
Small businesses across the country are facing uncertainty as a result of COVID-19. It is a challenging time as a business owner to lead your company through this crisis, but we aim to share resources to help you along the way.
Community Futures Cowichan understands this and encourages all our clients to connect with us on ways we can support you. Our office remains closed to the public and most staff are working remotely. We can be reached by email.
Community Futures financing is available for the start-up, acquisition or expansion of a business. Our flexible loans can assist with projects, capital expenses, start-up costs, inventory and working capital. We work with businesses to learn the nature of their financing needs and create custom loan products to help them reach their goals.
If you are interested in submitting an application or learning about our loans process, please follow these 6 steps to compile required information and prepare for a discussion with our staff.

Do you work with small business clients?
Maybe we can partner with you.
As a developmental lender, we can often lend money to businesses or individuals whom banks are unable to assist. Many financial institutions refer clients on to us as another potential source of financing. Or, we may work with financial institutions on joint financing for clients. Many entrepreneurs have had success using a combination of loans from both Community Futures and their financial institution.
