Growing A Business in Central Alberta

Scaling a business is hard.

You need to expand your business or grow into a new market, but your funds are limited. We know that expanding a business is exciting, yet challenging. Business development and helping entrepreneurs scale their businesses is what we love to do here at Community Futures Central Alberta. 

In order to grow, most businesses need funding to pay for:

  • Hiring staff
  • Marketing
  • Larger or additional locations
  • Tools & software
  • Training & certifications

Business loans help you access the tools and staff you need for your business to grow and reach new markets. Our team of Business Advisors is here to walk you through business planning for all scenarios (good or bad) to ensure you have the resources and financing you need to grow.


Have you been turned down by a bank for a small business loan? That’s why we’re here.

Our goal is to help make your business more bankable and to make it easier to obtain lending. We know how deflating it can feel to be turned down by the bank for funding because your business may not quite fall within their loan approval structure.

Community Futures Central Alberta is here to help you with planning your business’s success, FOR FREE! Our experienced team of rural Alberta Business Advisors is skilled and understands what it takes to succeed in our rural market.
