Description

If your co-operative is looking to grow, introduce new offerings to its members, or expand into new markets, the innovative financing solutions from Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund (CCIF) could be the resource you need. CCIF is also an incredible resource for Opportunity Development Co-operatives to access additional capital to finance larger projects to make a greater impact in your community!

On December 11th at 1PM, the Alberta Community and Co-operative Association is hosting a webinar with CCIF’s director of Community Lending, Christina Baker. This is an opportunity to not only learn more about the work of the CCIF, but discuss strategy, and to get your questions answered.

The Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund is an evergreen fund that exists to support Canadian co-operatives that are creating lasting impact across all sectors. CCIF is designed to address a gap in the co-operative sector’s access to loans, equity and quasi equity investments. Investing in the Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund creates lasting benefit to Canadian communities while providing a financial return.

This one-hour webinar provides an excellent opportunity to connect with a unique resource built to meet the financing needs of co-ops.
