Are Charities Ready for Social Finance? Investment Readiness in Canada’s Charitable Sector

On June 25, join our free webinar presented by Imagine Canada to learn more about social finance.

There is growing interest in social finance from government policymakers who see it as a tool for scaling innovative solutions to complex social and environmental challenges. For not-for-profits, social finance offers a new source of capital that could allow them to diversify their revenue streams and become more resilient in an increasingly precarious funding environment.

While social finance could have a transformative impact on the funding and financial landscape, relatively little is understood about its implications for charities. This webinar presents the results of a national survey of over 1,000 registered charities undertaken by Imagine Canada to better understand charities’ current readiness to participate in Canada’s growing social finance market.

To Buy Or Not To Buy: ‘How To Money’ Looks At The Housing Market & More

Spring is usually the busiest time for the housing market, but the coronavirus has changed that, too, and one listener asks Joel and Matt if they should buy now or wait until later. They’re already under contract, but have been advised that the market could be on a downturn, and if they wait, they could get a better price on the house. Not so fast, Joel says; while it’s true that banks have seen the lowest level of housing loan applications since 2015, that’s no indication that the market will change significantly, since housing inventory is still low. And right now, mortgage rates are incredibly low, so buying now with those rates could actually mean more savings in the long run than waiting for a cheaper price in the future. For that reason, refinancing an existing mortgage could be a good move, too. 

Another listener asks about the stimulus checks;
