An impact investment co-operative.
As a for-profit investment cooperative, we provide capital to Calgary-based entrepreneurs that generate financial, social and environmental returns. Local Investing YYC removes barriers to receiving funding through traditional channels, while creating local impact through member investments that are RRSP and TFSA eligible. We harness community capital to support innovative and growth-oriented ventures, making local investing more accessible for Albertans.
Local Investing YYC is the first approved Community Economic Development Corporation (“CEDC”) in Alberta, meaning that we’ve surpassed incredible milestones to offer you the opportunity to join us in our mission – to enable Albertans to invest in our local economy for a sustainable future. As a CEDC, our member investors are eligible to receive a 30% tax credit.
Local Investing YYC is a catalyst for quality jobs, equitable distribution of wealth and strong, sustainable communities.
