Borrowers count on Canada Penfund to provide timely, professional service with best-in-class pricing and a complete product line of both NHA insured and conventional loans across all asset classes.

The objective of Canada Penfund is to provide borrowers a safe, easy path to well priced mortgage capital. This results in direct investment by institutional and private Investors into quality mortgage loans secured by real property. Mortgage investments are primarily ‘investment grade’ mortgage loans secured by property such as apartments, retail plazas, warehouse and office buildings. Investment grade loans are those which Schedule A investors such as banks, life companies, CMHC and others routinely invest in. These loans have the highest probability of timely repayment and zero capital loss.
Canada Penfund is strategically aligned with institutional investors such as pension funds, provincial treasuries and life companies. Conventional and construction financing is funded through various lending partners. Loans are disbursed across Canada, mainly in the Provinces of British Columbia, the Prairie Provinces and Ontario. Loans are scrutinized by the Manager and the Board of Trustees to maintain a high industry-standard quality.
Canada Penfund Mortgage Corporation is a specialized asset manager focused on CMHC insured and conventional commercial real estate loans. In conjunction with EMD Pendfund Income Fund Inc., it may provide exclusive or syndicated access to commercial mortgages to qualified individuals, institutions, trusts, endowment funds and discretionary investment advisors. Canada Penfund has an unlimited capacity to originate commercial mortgage assets through its various vehicles and invests exclusively in commercial mortgage debt. Certain servicing duties are contracted to its Servicing Agent which has $14BB AUM.
Canada Penfund believes that attractive investment returns are achieved by active management in lending and investment. Officers within the firms have spent careers providing key financial, legal, valuation and other services to their clients.
*Low-risk refers to an industry-standard context and is not meant to imply the investment is without risk.
