The Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund (CCIF) is a new $25 million fund dedicated exclusively to bridging financing gaps for the co-operative sector in Canada. CCIF provides loans, equity and quasi equity ranging from $50,000 to $1.25 million per transaction. CCIF can work with co-ops in all provinces, territories and sectors. CCIF focuses on supporting the growth of existing co-ops, but can also support the conversion of traditional businesses into co-ops, and the start-up financing for new co-ops.
