Whether you're looking for business advice or cash, the Business Help Centre of Middlesex County can assist you in the next step for your business.  The Community Futures Program is a Government of Canada initiative which supports 60 Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDCs) in Ontario-- FedDev Ontario works with the 36 CFDCs in rural Eastern and Southern Ontario, while FedNor works with the 24 organizations in the North. 

CFDCs offer a wide variety of programs and services supporting community economic development and small business growth.

In particular, they provide:
  • Strategic community planning and socio-economic development;
  • Support for community-based projects;
  • Business information and planning services;
  • Access to capital for small- and medium-sized businesses and social enterprises.

These community-based, not-for-profit organizations are staffed by professionals and are each governed by local volunteer boards of directors familiar with their communities' needs, concerns and future development priorities.
