What is the interest rate that you will pay me if I invest in Stewards Canada Demand Variable Rate Bonds?

The current rate is 3.25% per annum paid semi-annually. This rate is periodically reviewed by the Stewards Canada Board of Directors to ensure that it is competitive with financial market conditions. You have a choice of receiving an interest cheque semi-annually (July and December) or of leaving the interest earned to compound. You are asked to choose between these two methods on the pdf-tinySubscription Agreement.

What if I need money from my bonds? Must I wait to receive it?
If you contact us by mail or email, we will immediately send you whatever monies you require. Generally, you will have your funds within two weeks of requesting them.
How secure will my investment be?
Your investment is backed by first mortgages on church properties across Canada. Mortgages are issued only when all the Stewards Canada stringent investment criteria are met. In its history, Stewards Canada has never lost money on any of its investments.
Have you ever missed an interest payment?
Stewards Canada has been serving the assemblies in Canada for over sixty years, offering private demand bonds to the congregations of Christians in the Brethren and other local churches across Canada. During that period we have been faithful in paying every semi-annual interest payment immediately following the period end.

Are Stewards Canada bonds issued in accordance with a federal or provincial Securities Act?
Our ministry of financial service can be offered strictly to the Christian believers in Canada. We are not licensed to promote our investments to the general public. Our bonds are not to be construed as a public offering and are issued under exemptions from the dealer registration and prospectus requirements of the Securities Acts in the provinces where they are sold. Our exemption is available to us as an issuer that is organized exclusively for educational, benevolent, fraternal, charitable, religious or recreational purposes and not for profit. As a result, a bond purchaser is restricted from using most of the civil remedies available under securities laws. In addition, Stewards Canada bonds are subject to resale restrictions under applicable securities laws in addition to the contractual restriction contained therein.
How do I know if a Stewards Canada investment is right for me and my personal financial circumstances?
We heartily recommend that all Stewards Canada investors consult with their own legal and financial advisors to ensure that it is suitable for the particular purchaser.
Is Stewards Canada audited by independent chartered accountants?
Yes. Our financial statements, including all bondholder accounts, are audited annually by an independent Christian Chartered Accountant. If you wish to review our audited financial statements, they are available upon request.
What kind of losses have you had in your history?
The Canadian Christian evangelical community has a very good reputation for repaying loans. We have never had a loss in our history since inception in 1952. Our experience is that most Stewards Canada mortgages are repaid before their termination date.
