On March 30, 2023, the Members of the Municipal Finance Authority of British Columbia approved the funding of the following loans. A new issue mandate announcement came on May 24th, with an official launch following on May 25th. Books were 1.7x oversubscribed and broadly distributed to 18 investors.  Funding was accomplished with a new 10.5-year 4.05% December 3, 2033, bullet debenture.
