2016 Alternative Finance Crowdfunding in Canada report cover 233x300 - Canadian Research

Fresh Research Just Released

TORONTO, ON December 13, 2016 – The National Crowdfunding Association of Canada (NCFA Canada) and partners are pleased to release this ground-breaking report on the state of the alternative finance crowdfunding industry in Canada.  Crowdfunding is on its way to being an integral part of the capital raising ecosystem in Canada and around the globe. With innovative and emerging fintech infrastructure, a growing number of funding portals and licensed dealer-brokers on both buy and sell sides can service a steady flow of start-ups and scale-ups interested in raising up to $5M of capital online to launch, grow, and commercialize ventures.

The 2016 Alternative Finance Crowdfunding in Canada is the inaugural report of NCFA’s annual exercise in providing Canadian benchmarks for market size, platform characteristics and funding transactions, as well as an overview of legal considerations, the regulatory environment and emerging market trends and developments in what is arguably one of the most innovative financing tools of our generation. Crowdfunding combines technology, the internet and the power of the ‘crowd’ to streamline the process of raising capital from a full spectrum of investors while filling an under-serviced funding gap in venture markets.
