AgriRoots Capital Management Inc. is a different type of lender. Started in 2019 by an experienced team of individuals in the agricultural, alternative lending, and investment industries, AgriRoots offers financing to farmers and agri-business operators focused on supporting Canadian farming families along with socially and environmentally conscious farming practices. Intended to be complementary to traditional lenders, AgriRoots works with other Agricultural Advisors to position our clients for a successful transition to a traditional lender – or another successful exit strategy – while working with each farmer or operator to build good business and operational governance, ensure positive social impact, and improve revenues.


As a senior executive in the financial services industry in Canada for more than 22 years, as well as having key personal experience in the agricultural industry, Shawn is an accomplished business leader in retail banking, commercial and agricultural lending, and wealth management. His robust skill set includes strategic planning, asset / liability and liquidity management, mergers and acquisitions, and enterprise risk management.

A life-long resident of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Shawn’s understanding and affinity for the farming community provides AgriRoots with firsthand farm experience and the ability to assess and structure agricultural sector mortgages and financing that are sensitive and specific to the people and businesses in this sector. Shawn completed his MBA in Financial Services at Dalhousie University, and continues to be an active Chatham-Kent community participant through his service on a number of local Boards and Committees.
