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.
Targeted Infrastructure Sectors
Northeast focuses primarily on three infrastructure investment categories: green infrastructure, connectivity and resiliency. 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.
