Western Ontario Rural Capital Pool

Community Futures Middlesex is a participant in the Western Ontario Rural Capital (WORC) Pool. This fund was established by members of Western Ontario Community Futures (WOCF) in March 2016.

The WORC Pool intends to support participating CFDCs in accessing funds for their clients, bolstering the lending to small businesses in Southwestern Ontario and supporting projects that align with regional diversification and development planning for industry clusters.

FedDev Ontario contributed $3.2 million to jump-start the WORC Pool with the purposes of facilitating long-term development and building strong, diverse economies in Southwestern Ontario.
