Charity Flow-Through Financing

Oberon is a leading Charity Flow-Through ("CFT") provider and registered as an Exempt Market Dealer and Portfolio Manager in every province of Canada. Oberon has facilitated over CAD$1.6 billion of CFT over the last 15 years, significantly enhancing its clients’ giving power and transforming the lives of the people they support.

CFT is a uniquely Canadian structured financing product, that eliminates market and liquidity risk while combining two long established government tax regimes:

  1. Flow-Through Shares and
  2. Charitable Donation Tax credits

Oberon’s structured format simultaneously benefits the Canadian charity and not-for-profit sector and the Canadian resource exploration and development sector - two critical elements of the Canadian economy. It significantly reduces a philanthropist's after-tax cost of giving, while enabling greater access to capital at reduced dilution for natural resource companies exploring and developing in Canada.
