David Sharpe, CEO of Bridging Finance, says signing deals with First Nations for major projects is just good sense.
“We know that with every major project across this land, you must work with First Nations,” Sharpe says.
Bridging Finance is an alternative lender on Bay Street with a focus on Indigenous business development. As its CEO, Sharpe has financed housing construction, and oil, gas and renewable energy projects on — and for — First Nations.
“It’s no longer that you’re going to Bay Street, Wall Street, to get the money first. You’re going to the First Nations,” he says.
