FAQ

What is an investment club?
An investment club is made up of a small group of about 50 people. Each member has agreed to pool together a regular monthly deposit into the club with the goal of building and managing a collective portfolio of investments. In addition to investing, another objective is to enable its members to learn and understand the economic, financial and stock market mechanisms, this is accomplished through the sharing amongst members.
How to apply ?
It’s very simple ! First, learn about the process for new members (Link to process). It consists of 3 steps: 1) Become familiar with GIVE, 2) Apply for membership to the GIVE waiting list and 3) Introduce yourself and wait for the vote of the partners.
How much does it cost ?
Associates pay a one-time membership fee of $ 100.00, payable when joining GIVE. This charge is not counted as a deposit. Thereafter, each partner makes a monthly deposit of $ 50, or $ 100, or $ 150.
Do you have to be an investment expert?
No, GIVE is open to anyone interested in learning more about investing and who shares the values of veganism. GIVE offers an accessible environment for learning, sharing and conviviality.
How do you verify that companies are truly vegan?
We ensure through a due diligence process that the companies in which we invest respect our values (LINK to the charter). We use publicly available information (website, report, etc.), company certifications and company commitments. If in doubt, we contact the company.
Is this an eligible investment for an RRSP or a TFSA?
No. Contributions made by GIVE members are not eligible for a registered plan such as an RRSP or TFSA.
