About Us

Infrastructure Investment Off the Beaten Path

We invest away from the crowd, matching long-term private financing with underserved markets. Our community-focused and bottom-up approach targets mid-size energy infrastructure projects, with particular emphasis on critical infrastructure at the local and regional levels.

We specialize in essential infrastructure services that contribute to social well-being, security and prosperity, where demand is contractually protected or highly predictable over time.

  • Originate and promote investment in high-quality, revenue-generating assets that earn long-term stable cash flows.
  • Work with communities, First Nations, utilities and developers to identify and evaluate market-ready projects that promote sustainable development and community renewal.
  • Provide projects with a range of financing options, including direct lending, that align with and attract lower-cost public sources of capital.
  • Adhere to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles to mitigate risks and build on the United Nations sustainable development goal of “build back better.”
  • Maximize operational and financing efficiencies by bundling several smaller to mid-size projects into a single portfolio.

Targeted Infrastructure Sectors

Northeast focuses primarily on renewable natural gas (RNG) and “green” hydrogen blending facilities that transition households and businesses away from the consumption of carbon-emitting fuels.

All our investments to date are in Ontario – Canada’s most populous province and home to 40% of the country’s population. However, we are open to new investment opportunities throughout Canada.
