While in its infancy, the growth and impact of equity crowdfunding is steadily advancing in Canada, the U.S. and many international jurisdictions, and is bound to have a significant impact on how small-to-midsize-businesses (SMEs) raise early rounds of seed and expansion capital resulting in a new pipeline of crowdfunded ventures.

“I’m excited at the opportunities which Crowdfunding is creating to help the overall entrepreneurial eco-system and I look forward to assisting with these opportunities in my position as a member of NCFA Canada’s Executive.” – Jeff Musson, President, Dynamite Network

On December 6, 2013, the Financial Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA) approved Canada’s first equity crowdfunding specific exemption in the province of Saskatchewan legally permitting SMEs the ability to raise small amounts of capital (up to $300,000 annually) from non-accredited investors via online equity crowdfunding portals.

The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) announced on December 4th that they will publish a proposed equity crowdfunding exemption including a framework for portal registration for public comment by the end of Q1-2014.

“Jeff is a seasoned entrepreneur in residence and valuable resource to any team who has the ability to connect, execute and solve complex problems and we look forward to his immediate contributions to the Association.” – Craig Asano, Founder and Executive Director of National Crowdfunding Association of Canada
