Community Bonds


Invest in social impact with community bonds

The community bond program represents $2.5 million dollars in local investments, which have been generating stable and predictable returns. We have have consistently generated approximately $90,000 in annual interest payments to our current community bond holders each and every year since 2016. That’s investment revenue that stays in the community and supports community goals!

New Appraised Value of 42 Carden Street: Commercial Property Appraisal

All of the Series A-K Community Bonds are registered on a second mortgage and asset-backed by the property at 42 Carden Street which is appraised on a regular basis. This appraised value has increased since 2015:

DateValueIncrease / Decrease
2022$3,700,000+$300,000 *
2021$3,400,000-$430,000 *
2015$2,350,000Initial as-built value

* In March 2021, the appraised value dipped by $430,000 showing the short-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on commercial real estate valuations. Due to Guelph’s strong economic factors, this has since recovered in the most recent December 2022 appraisal of $3,700,000.00 – providing increased value backing for our community bond holders. As of July 2023, all community bonds in Series A through J are fully backed by the real estate value of 42 Carden Street.
