Community Impact Loans

Community Impact Loans

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Affinity is proud to offer specialized lending programs for community projects and organizations — including non-profit social enterprises and non-profit cooperatives — that may not normally qualify for conventional credit. In particular, those that:

  • develop and/or increase access to affordable housing along the housing continuum — from affordable rental properties to seniors' housing
  • increase access to social and community services, especially targeting disadvantaged individuals, neighbourhoods and communities
  • create jobs or income opportunities for individuals with barriers to employment
  • enable community organizations and cooperatives to purchase, renovate or develop community-owned facilities to house their programs and services and improve their financial stability
  • enhance environmental sustainability and promote ecologically responsible practices
