What is a MIC (Mortgage Investment Corporation)?

Mortgage Investment Corporations (MICs) are flow-through investment vehicles that invest primarily in a pool of mortgage loans with the goal of generating income. By investing in a pool of mortgages (as opposed to an investment in a single mortgage), investors can diversify their risk and also  earn monthly income.


Our  MICs are Canada Revenue Agency designated investment entities which  allow a pre-tax interest dividend payout of its entire income. Interest income dividends are distributed among our shareholders monthly.

What is a Debenture?

A debenture is an unsecured debt obligation which has a fixed term and fixed rate of interest. 

Our debenture product, the AWC Strategic Income Fund Ltd., is a corporation that issues unsecured debentures and provides a termed yield to investors, which are backed by first mortgages. 

Invest In Your Future

Alta West provides unique investment opportunities to help you reach your savings and retirement goals. Our Mortgage Investment Corporations are RRSP, RESP and and TFSA eligible.


Why invest through your RRSP?


By investing the money you have in your RRSP you are getting immediate tax relief by deducting your RRSP contributions from your income each year. The income you make in your RRSP is not taxable if it stays in the plan.


Why invest through your TFSA?


A TFSA allows you to set money aside in eligible investments and watch those savings grow tax-free throughout your lifetime. Interest and dividends earned in a TFSA are tax-free and your TFSA savings can be withdrawn from your account at any time.


Why invest through your RESP?


A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is an investment vehicle available to parents in Canada to save for their children’s post-secondary education. The principal advantages of RESP’s are the access they provide to the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) and as a method of generating tax-deferred income.
