Small Business Training

 Taking Care of Business - Community Futures- Okanagan Similkameen


From wildfires and flooding to mill closures and curtailments, it’s tough out there for small business. That’s especially true in rural areas, where support and resources are slim. We live and work in those same communities, and we want to help our local small businesses stay strong.

The Disaster Recovery and Economic Adjustment Initiative delivers relief funding and resources to businesses in eligible regions, through our Taking Care of Business Platform. All you need to do is create an account, and fill out a couple of quick, easy eligibility applications. From there, we can help you access free business workshops, peer mentoring, professional business coaching and consulting, and even get reimbursed for business-specific training for you and your employees. These strategies and sessions are all tailored to rural business needs, to help you stay profitable and sustainable. Get expert business advice, and connect with other small business owners facing the same challenges as you. We’re here for you every step of the way. To sign up for free follow the link
