Community Futures Development Corporation Of North And Central Hastings And South Algonquin

Odey Algonquin Women’s Business Network

Founded over 30 years ago, Community Futures Development Corporation of North & Central Hastings and South Algonquin provides programs and services to support enterprise, community-based development and employment in our region.

The CFDC has partnered with the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First Nation to nurture existing & aspiring women entrepreneurs in the Algonquin Community. By providing access to a variety of resources, Indigenous women of the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini First Nation will develop their entrepreneurial skills to start and grow their businesses in a supportive environment.

“Working closely with our indigenous partners and developing a relationship is an important part of the project and ensures we are being inclusive and respectful. We look forward to expanding the project to other Algonquin communities outside of our region.”
