True North Mortgage/Manzil (TNM Manzil), a specialized lending platform, is seeking $40 million to grow its mortgage forward flow program

Prime-credit first-lien mortgages on primary residences 

Growth of Portfolio

Alternative asset CAGR of greater than 100% since inception in 2020



True North Mortgage handles underwriting and servicing

Currently servicing $4 billion portfolio with a 0.08% arrears on all mortgages originated over its 20 years in business

Use of Proceeds &


TNM Manzil aims to use the $40 million in conjunction with an efficient warehouse and rated securitization facilities to fund a forward flow of TNM Manzil’s prime credit mortgage pipeline (current client waitlist exceeds TNM Manzil’s capital capabilities by multiples)


There is a growing financing gap for clients that are seeking mortgages for homes greater than $ 1 million, refinancings or unique mortgage terms.  Banks are unable to meet this growing financing demand due to regulatory restrictions

Prime-credit immigrant populations are a particularly underserved market due lack of bank outreach

TNM Manzil has developed the only Canadian lending platform that offers a wide range of alternative mortgage options targeting prime-credit immigrant populations


  • Structural characteristics of the Canadian mortgage market create a demand for non-agency mortgages because they must be used to:
  • Finance homes in expanding urban centers like the Toronto and Vancouver areas which have growing average prices of greater than $CAD 1 million for single detached homes2
  • Meet any mortgage-refinancing needs of consumers that are seeking better financing terms
  • Serve the requirements of relatively high immigrant populations that seek unique financing structures and terms
TNM Manzil’s alternative prime-credit assets have nearly doubled every year since inception in 2020 and current client waitlist exceeds TNM Manzil’s capital capabilities by multiples


  • High quality origination and strong Canadian underwriting standards have proven continued resiliency in the face of global economic downturns
  • Payments on Canadian mortgages have been uncorrelated to the global capital markets
  • Canadian mortgages have among the lowest arrears rates in the OECD group
  • Canadian current arrears rate of 0.18% nationally, as compared to the US rate of 3.34%3
