Financings For Resource Issuers

WCPD is a leading exempt market dealer offering efficient financing for Canadian resource and mineral exploration.

We are dedicated to arranging the subscription, donation and sale of flow-through share private placements through our national network of institutional investors. Since 2006, our flow-through share financings have resulted in more than 550 private placements with over 150 issuers.

WCPD is proud to play a role in our resource industry. In addition to contributing over $100 billion to our annual GDP, it continues to be a major source of employment in Canada. In fact, the sector directly and indirectly employs more than 500,000 Canadians, while serving as the top employer of Indigenous Peoples.

Meanwhile, mining has also been deemed crucial to the economic and national security of nations. In July 2021, the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), Geoscience Australia (GA) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) launched the Critical Minerals Mapping Initiative, or CMMI, to research and discover known deposits. Whether it is cobalt and lithium for electric car batteries, tellurium for solar panels, or rare earth elements for phones, computers and medical technologies, critical minerals will continue to play a pivotal role in the green economy of the future.

Beyond financing expertise, our firm is also known for its efficiency, attention to detail and excellent customer service.

We look forward to performing for you in the future. Please contact Peter Nicholson, President and CEO of WCPD Inc., or Michel Tilsley, Director of Financial Services, for more information.
