Welcome to Community Futures Winnipeg River
Community Futures Winnipeg River (CFWR) is a community based, regional economic development organization serving the North Eastman region of Manitoba since 1988. We are one of 16 Community Futures Development Corporations in Manitoba and are funded primarily by Western Economic Diversification Canada.
CFWR works to enhance community growth and prosperity for the North Eastman region. We build strength and knowledge within our businesses, entrepreneurs, social organizations, and local governments. At the heart of the Community Futures program is a firm belief that building local capacity gives communities the strength and ability to shape their own futures and to thrive in a changing economic environment.
Our programs and services are designed to help rural communities strengthen the social fabric and economic potential and to capitalize on regional economic opportunities. Strong leaders, strategic partnerships, and effective organizations make our region the diverse, economically sustainable place we call home.
