Current investment options and regulations in Canada significantly restrict Canadians from investing into local opportunities.
The result is that nearly all investment capital leaves local communities, taking jobs and opportunity with it. The Sunshine Coast where we live, work and play is overlooked and under financed.
Rural British Columbia business development studies and economic development organizations have identified that ‘access to capital’ is a top barrier to business start-ups, expansions and successions.
The Sunshine Coast Community Investment Co-op closes that loop by keeping investment funds local where dollars can create economic and social impacts where we live.
