We are a social enterprise that offers a better alternative to payday loans.


If you need access to money, a payday loan shouldn't be your only option.

The Causeway Community Finance Fund is a community-led initiative designed to empower you by combining access to low-interest loans and financial literacy resources to help many of Ottawa's most vulnerable residents break free from the cycle of predatory lending and fringe financial services.

Every day, many Canadians fall victim to predatory and fringe financial services, many of whom do not have access to mainstream financial services. We believe that we can help to fix this problem by offering a better alternative.

The first step in applying for a loan is to contact us directly. We will look at your income and ability to make repayments and develop a solution that makes sense for you.

The Causeway Community Finance Fund is a social enterprise developed by Causeway Work Centre.
