OKR is a Canadian specialized private debt fund that offers non-dilutive financing for SME’s using their federal and provincial R&D grants and tax credits as collateral. The issue faced by a growing number of growing companies in Canada is the face that there is generally a 3-4-month time lag between being approved/applying for grants and actually receiving funds from the government program.

We offer short term bridge financing solutions that allow these companies to advance cash against these government receivables and then pay off their loan facilities when funds are received.

Western Pacific Trust Company is a BC based boutique trust company, focused on the private capital markets. We work with early stage companies raising capital to broaden the capital pool from which they can draw.

We accept eligible private investments into our RRSPs and TFSAs, enabling investors to diversify their registered plan portfolios and sheltering any growth earned. New RRSP contributions, coupled with EBC tax credits if applicable, de-risk the investment substantially, making a compelling case for the prospective investor.

Our knowledgeable and responsive team works closely with founders and their investors to guide them through the process. Contact us to learn how we can help.
