Board of Directors

Community Futures Parkland is a regionally governed not-for-profit organization. We receive annual core-funding from Western Economic Diversification and many projects are funded with assistance from the Province of Manitoba. But most importantly, all our decisions are made locally. It gives us flexibility and independence. Our Board of Directors make sure that we follow the rules, provide solid financial management & oversight and provide us with guidance via strategic planning. A busy but rewarding task!
