Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund

The Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund (CCIF) bridges the gap faced by co-operatives and mutuals: the difficulty of accessing capital without having to compromise autonomy.

The CCIF follows the co-operative principles and its Board of Directors is mostly made of investors, co-operative developers, CCIF clients, and CMC.

Visit the CCIF website for more information or to apply for funding.

The Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund was founded and established by CMC. CCIF is a Limited Partnership with CCIF GP as its co-operative General Partner. The Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund (CCIF) is a $25 million alternative financing source that provides loans, equity and quasi equity to co operatives across Canada. The Fund works to bridge gaps in access to capital for co-operative enterprises, so they can reach their goals and strengthen their communities. The loans are flexible and tailored to the specific development stage and needs of borrowers. In addition, CCIF partners with credit unions and other capital providers to increase funding capacity. Capital investments range from $50,000 to $1.25M per transaction. CCIF invests in many sectors, including affordable housing, renewable energy, agriculture and food, business growth, sharing economy, indigenous communities and telecommunications.
