Vision Quest is back for it's 13th year!.
We've got a new website.
The Southeast Community Futures Development Corporation (SCFDC) was incorporated in 1985 and originally funded through Human Resource Development Canada (HRDC). At the time HRDC made available $1.5 million to be used specifically as a loan fund. To date SCFDC has accessed $990,245.00 of these funds for this specific purpose. Currently, we are one of sixteen Business Development corporations in Manitoba funded by Western Economic Diversification.
The community futures programs operate across rural and northern Canada as a grass-roots driven program created to strengthen rural economies by enabling entrepreneurship and assisting in community economic development.
