Folkets Framtid ('The People's Future') was a Norwegian newspaper. It was the official party organ of the Christian Democratic Party.

It was established in 1947 in Mysen.[1] From 1954 to 1957 it was published in Trondheim, as the local Christian newspaper in that city had become defunct. From 1958 it was headquartered in Oslo.[2] Among its former editors-in-chief are Egil Aarvik.[3]

In its later years, it was distributed largely among members of the Christian Democratic Party. Its circulation was 12,335 in 1983,[1] and about 5,240 in 2003.[2] Following hardships with party finances, the Christian Democratic Party decided to close the newspaper in late 2005.[4]
