CO-OPERATIVE LENDING
AND EQUITY INVESTMENT

WHAT WE DO

CCIF is an innovative fund that strengthens Canadian communities by filling a financing gap for co-operatives. CCIF can partner with financial institutions or provide standalone financing to co-operatives in a wide variety of sectors.

ABOUT

  • CCIF invests in the co-operative sector in the form of loans, equity and quasi equity investments. We primarily focus on supporting the growth of existing co-ops. We also support the conversion of traditional businesses into co-ops and start-up financing for new co-ops.
  • We invest in co-operatives that are committed to making a difference in their communities.
  • Our loans are flexible and tailored to your specific co-operative development stage.
  • We draw on extensive experience to structure financing opportunities that are customized to our borrowers’ needs.
  • We aim to provide co-operatives with the financial tools they need to serve their communities.
CCIF invests in co-operative enterprise in many ways:
  • Loans: bridge loans, cash flow, equipment, mortgages, operating capital
  • Equity: share capital
  • Quasi Equity: deferred principle, graduated interest
  • Loans to support the share-purchase acquisition for the transfer of enterprises into co-operative ownership

CCIF does not invest in financial institutions or credit unions.
