Alfred and Susan Chisolm founded Money in Motion in 1989 with one goal in mind: to help small and medium sized businesses who were turned away by the banks acquire the equipment and/or capital they needed to succeed. Money in Motion has never lost sight of that goal and has been providing alternative finance / equipment leasing solutions to businesses all across Canada for more than 25 years.


Alfred Chisholm had been working in the leasing industry for over 40 years when he saw that the traditional financing industry wasn’t taking care of the needs of heavy equipment owners and operators. Alf wanted to help the hardworking people in industries like:

  • Construction
  • Waste Recycling
  • Transportation
  • Oil & Gas
  • Forestry
  • Manufacturing
  • Towing
  • Computers and Tech/Software
  • Industrial
  • Passenger vehicle operations

He and his wife Susan saw a gap in the market and used their knowledge of trucks and heavy equipment and their love of helping others to set up Money in Motion. They were then able to offer financial services tailor-made for a niche market that was otherwise neglected by the banks. The secret to their success and longevity is in the importance they’ve always placed on building solid relationships with their clients and funding partners.


With over 40 employees and 10 locations across Canada, Money in Motion is one of the country’s leading equipment leasing and financing intermediaries. We specialize in providing financial services to business owners who need special equipment to get the job done.
