Who we are
We are a community-focussed social enterprise that encourages local economic development and diversification through impact investing. We provide strategic advice and capital to innovators and high-impact projects.
The health and well-being of you, your enterprise, and your community is our top priority during the COVID-19 challenge. We stand ready to support enterprises through to a more stable period. We are offering recovery loans for organizations negatively impacted, and providing relief for enterprises experiencing hardship as a result of the outbreak. We encourage you to stay informed about the disease, and monitor Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response. Our offices are closed to the public, though we continue to offer telephone consultations and hold virtual meetings, and encourage businesses seeking advice to email our Social Finance Specialist.
What we do
We offer social finance that includes: affordable loans for business and social enterprises; equity investments for high-growth ventures; and grants for targeted sectors. Our experienced social finance team help innovators connect to a diverse network of entrepreneurs, investors, and community organizations that are well-integrated into the wider innovation ecosystem – locally, regionally, nationally, and abroad.
Building sustainable communities
We support the transition of local communities to the new rural economy and promote sustainable development that leads to shared prosperity, creating the jobs of tomorrow and preparing communities for the economy of the future.

Investing for impact
We connect entrepreneurs with investors.
We connect investors with opportunities.
Together, we make an impact.
We work with investors and enterprises to develop and report on tailored metrics that capture the financial, social, and environmental impacts of their activities. We collaborate with place-based impact investors across Canada to share data, knowledge, and best practices.
We work across a diverse range of sectors from family-run farm-to-table enterprises to high-growth ventures disrupting traditional industries through the adoption of innovative technologies and original business models.
For rural. By rural.
We are headquartered on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, with offices in the rural communities of Prince Edward County and neighbouring Lennox & Addington County.
We are a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors and strive to practice and advocate good governance.
We are committed to inclusion and to lowering barriers to the economic participation of: youth; women; Indigenous peoples; persons with disabilities; newcomers; and visible minorities.
