Community Futures Development Corporation of the Nicola Valley was established in 1989 to assist residents of Merritt and the Nicola Valley in generating local solutions to  shared economic challenges.

Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by community members who volunteer to sit on Committees of the Board, CFNV offers a wide selection of Community Economic Development (CED) services including:  small business lending and counseling; economic stabilization projects; and support for local not-for-profit agencies involved in tourism, arts and culture, and community vitality.  

Although not CFNV’s core mandate, we offer support where possible, to the City of Merritt  Business Development Department which takes lead on investment attraction and municipally funded economic development services.   Core funding for CFNV is provided by Western Economic Diversification (WED) of the Government of Canada.
