Business Development

For rural and remote communities to compete/survive/thrive in our fast changing world they must adopt new and focused business /economic development strategies. Successful communities and entrepreneurs identify economic opportunities and find unique ways to build upon what they already have. They use existing assets, and look for new ways to produce and market products and services.

Haida Gwaii Community Futures plays a key role alongside other local and regional community leaders in the development of a sustainable future vision. Along with our community partners we invest in activities and projects designed to allow our communities to be resilient and successful.

We also work closely with individual businesses and entrepreneurs to develop the plans and skills for success.
