event details

Exempt Market Dealers Association of Canada (EMDA), in partnership with the Canada’s Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (CVCA), invites you to attend CROWDFUNDING in the CANADIAN CONTEXT on February 12, 2013.

Crowdfunding represents a new part of the capital-raising ecosystem and is being seriously considered by securities regulators in Canada, along with the other new capital raising prospectus exemptions. On December 14, 2012, the Ontario Securities Commission published its concept proposal titled OSC Staff Consultation Paper 45-710 – Considerations for New Capital Raising Prospectus Exemptions, which you can review here.

To engage our respective members in a discussion on the key issues, and to help prepare our respective responses to regulators, CVCA and EMDA have joined together to bring you this unique event.
