“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”  -Alice Walker

The residents of Halifax Estates, a mobile home park community in Halifax, Massachusetts, have been working to gain ownership over their community for the past two and a half years. Today, we are pleased to announce that they have completed their deal! Congratulations Halifax Estates!

One of the first questions investors ask of a company is, “What’s your Exit Strategy?”

In other words, when are you going to go public or sell your company to a larger company so I can cash out with 10 times my original investment? 

In rural and remote western Canada, working together is necessary. Without the support of neighbours, family and friends, much of the development created, maintained and developing in rural and remote areas simply wouldn’t and couldn’t take place.

Most of the time this “working together” is not formal nor is it incorporated into a legal business entity, like a co-op. It’s simply neighbours working together to get crops off the field, roads cleared of snow drifts, farm machinery fixed or community buildings – like churches, rinks and schools – built.
