Canadian Alternative Investment Co-operative

The Canadian Alternative Investment Co-op is a fund formed in the early 1980’s by a number of religious communities who wanted to pool their resources in order to make investment that support positive social change and alternative economic structures. CAIC has since grown to forty-eight members with a lending pool of approximately $7 million invested in worthwhile projects across Canada. Our borrowers are building alternative economic structures that are supportive of worker cooperatives, disadvantaged peoples and the environment.
