Community Futures Pan West Conference

Community Futures Pan West Network is thrilled to invite you to join us in beautiful Kelowna, BC as we host the 2024 Community Futures Pan West Network conference Focus On The Future.

Building communities one idea at a time.

Welcome to Community Futures Pan West, a joint initiative of the four provincial Community Futures associations that was established in 1996 and formally incorporated in 2018. Working in partnership with Prairies Economic Development Canada and Pacific Economic Development Canada, the Community Futures Pan West Network provides support to the network of 90 Community Futures organizations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which provide business development services to Canada’s rural west.
