Who We Are

CBGF helps privately-owned Canadian businesses with the capital, talent, and expertise they need to drive growth and realize their potential.

Supported by Canada’s leading banks and insurance companies, we have a national mandate to provide long-term, patient, minority capital to entrepreneurs pursuing growth and expansion strategies.

With initial capital commitments of $545 million and projected to increase to $1 billion over time, CBGF is an independent, values-driven partner for teams committed to taking their business to the next level.

How We Invest

We view our investments as partnerships. As a minority equity investor, the teams that we back and the relationships we build with them are fundamental to our collective success.

When we invest, we take a long-term view and treat the relationship seriously from day one. We are diligent and methodical, but strive to be pragmatic and collaborative to keep companies focused on their operations.

How We Help

To realize their full potential, companies need more than capital.

When CBGF invests, we bring our team’s experience in business strategy, investing, and corporate finance, as well as a talent network that can help entrepreneurs overcome critical knowledge and talent gaps that will likely arise as their businesses expand.

We help by supporting our partners and letting them do what they do best – run their business – and we focus on adding value where we can.
