Help Fellow Canadians
goPeer is 100% Canadian. When you invest in a goPeer loan, you contribute to helping real people in Canada.
Our innovative approach to lending focuses on financial wellness, empowering Canadians to help each other achieve their goals faster.
How we mitigate risk
Rigorous credit assessment
goPeer uses advanced technology to assess every application, so only creditworthy individuals are approved for a loan and placed onto the platform.
With a $10/loan minimum investment, spreading your investment across many borrowers is important to stabilize your returns.
When a borrower is unable to fully repay their loan, goPeer handles everything for you. goPeer’s collections and recoveries team works to recover as much as possible for you so that your returns can be as high as possible.

Have questions? Here are the answers.
Investment on our platform is open to any individual living in Canada. You do not need to be an accredited investor or financial institution to invest through goPeer.
goPeer connects people seeking loans with investors like you. As an investor on our platform, you are purchasing interest in loans originated by goPeer. More specifically, you are buying payment-dependent notes issued by Peer Capital Corporation, privately placed by Peer Securities Corporation, a registered as exempt market dealer in all Canadian provinces, and which are dependent for payment on corresponding loans originated by goPeer Corporation.
You earn 100% of your pro rata share of the principal and interest (after the servicing fee) as borrowers repay their loans, and you hold the entirety of the risk. No claim may be made against goPeer (or its affiliates) for shortfalls resulting from loan defaults.
goPeer charges a 1.5% servicing fee, which is applied as a 1/12th of 1.5% monthly fee (0.125%) on the unpaid principal balance of outstanding loans. This fee is deducted from borrower payments on the loans underlying your Notes. Peer Securities does not charge any separate or additional brokerage account or transactional fees.
The minimum amount you can invest per loan is just $10. There are no minimum transfer commitments.
After you have set up your account you will have access to our Investor Portal, which allows you to access the platform, view your portfolio, monitor returns, and much more. You’ll also receive monthly account statements with investment information including portfolio holdings, payment history, and unpaid principal balance.
goPeer is required by law to ensure that your goals and experience as an investor are aligned with this investment opportunity. The suitability section of your investor profile helps us understand your investment experience and objectives, liquidity needs, and risk tolerance. This information will not be used for marketing purposes and will not be sold, rented or loaned to any third party
We encourage investors to use Auto Invest to build a diversified portfolio and compound the interest earned. However, automated investing is optional. You can browse the platform within the Investor Portal to search for investment opportunities that suit you, subject to diversification requirements.
The Investor Portal gives you the ability to view information such as the borrowers’ locations, industry of employment, annual income and purpose of the loan. You can also view the borrowers’ financial details and see key attributes of the corresponding loans, including debt-to-income ratios, income, and credit score ranges.
Only individuals that have passed our credit assessment process can borrow through goPeer.
New loans are listed frequently. Please check back onto the goPeer Invest tab for the new listed loans.
As you set up your profile, you will provide a bank account to be used for deposits and withdrawals. You can withdraw your repayments as they come in, if Auto Invest is turned off, as well as any of your funds that aren’t lent out. There are no fees to make a withdrawal.
No, due to regulatory restrictions, goPeer does not offer a secondary market at this time. You should invest with the intent and expectation of holding purchased Notes until maturity.
You need to be living in Canada and have a Canadian bank account to be able to invest through goPeer.
goPeer’s collections and recoveries team pursues every single late or defaulted loan to recover as much as possible. We use a variety of methods and technologies that analyze the specific financial situation of each borrower to maximize your recovery.
When a loan defaults, your account will show a total loss of principal. However, we will continue to work to make recoveries, so it’s worth remembering that the amount “lost” on recent defaults may improve over time.
Yes, borrowers can repay their loans early without a prepayment penalty. If this happens, your outstanding principal will be returned to your investor account where it can be lent to other borrowers.
Please consult your tax professional to address your specific taxation requirements. goPeer provides investors with a T5 Form.
goPeer closely monitors external macroeconomic conditions in addition to the performance of loans. Where signs indicate worsening conditions, we will make credit strategy changes to favor investor yield for new loans.
In addition, we regularly perform stress tests to simulate what could happen to investor returns during difficult periods, for example during an economic downturn. This is just one of many steps we’ve taken as part of a comprehensive, data-driven approach to risk management at goPeer.
We take the privacy and information security of our investors, borrowers and partners incredibly seriously, and are committed to providing the best level of protection for our customers and their data.
We believe that full and strict adherence to regulations is essential to protect both our investors and borrowers, and to build a sustainable business.

Past performance is not a guide to future returns, and your capital is at risk when investing through goPeer.
