CFAs are specialists and plugged into an international network of shared resources, thought leadership, and industry professionals striving to cultivate and shape the future of crowdfunding in Canada and beyond.

“The world is influenced by “6 pixels of separation. Technology can now deliver events, information and news at a heightened pace allowing us to learn instantly about what is happening on our planet. We learn more, we emote more and we just well, engage more. Crowdfunding is based upon these engagement principles; it allows people who share like-minded values, goals or ideals to come together. This primary connection is rooted in motivation and passion, both strong reasons why Crowdfunding is successful today and growing, and I am pleased to be a part of it.” – Lyn Blanchard, President, Creekstone Consulting Inc.
“In addition to running a successful management consulting practice for over a decade, and being an avid supporter of Crowdfunding, Lyn has developed a program called ‘Your Capital Edge’ that focuses on helping entrepreneurs develop financial literacy and business planning skills. We greatly look forward to Lyn’s contributions to NCFA Canada’s educational mandate, as we continue to expand the Crowdfunding Ambassadors program coast-to-coast.” -- Craig Asano, Founder and Executive Director, NCFA Canada.
