Client Feedback

“I told the board that Encasa offered an excellent program, especially because we could choose a fund based on our specific circumstances, and we wouldn’t have to worry about having to make new arrangements when an investment matures. The program had quite good returns on average over time.”

Franca Sorace, Property Manager, First United Church Social Housing Society

“The greatest benefits (of the Social Housing Investment Program) are obviously the returns, the ability to have shorter to long-term investments, and to withdraw when we need to with no penalty. In addition to all that, I love the fact that we’re supporting the affordable housing sector by investing with Encasa.”

Karen Gerein, Executive Director, Vernon Native Housing Society

“The program provides enough options to give you choices whether you are big or little but at the same time, it’s not so complicated that you have to struggle with your decisions”

Jim Steele, CEO, Windsor Essex Community Housing Corporation

“We’re also investing in ourselves — that’s what’s important. The money is staying in the sector and growing the sector.”

Sandie Brown, President, Killarney Gardens Housing Co-op

“Whenever we had a question about something, they (Encasa staff) have been there. They’re super helpful.”

Nick Osmond-Jones, Board Member, Seawalk Co-operative Homes
