MISSION AND GOALS
GROWING COMMUNITIES ONE IDEA AT A TIME.
Community Futures Nadina will provide programs and services to the people of the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District. We will actively seek opportunities to develop and sustain cooperative community economic ventures and initiatives.
This mission is achieved by creating partnerships for planning and implementing community change by building and improving our physical, social and human resource infrastructure.
