OSC to hold crowdfunding roundtable

May 15, 2013

The Ontario Securities Commission has announced that it will be hosting a roundtable discussion on June 11 to obtain input from investors regarding investing in small and medium sized enterprises and start-ups. As we discussed in December, the OSC is currently considering a number of new capital raising prospectus exemptions to address the desire among some in the investing community to increase access to capital for issuers and to increase investment opportunities. The comment period in respect of the OSC's most recent consultation paper on the subject ended on March 8. The topics for discussion at the roundtable, meanwhile, include crowdfunding, as well as the type of information investors would require in order to make investment decisions.
