On May 28, 2014, I participated in a breakfast meeting on equity crowdfunding in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The meeting was sponsored the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce and the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada. The meeting was called: “Leading the Way: Saskatchewan’s Emerging Equity Crowdfunding Environment”. Other panelists included: Dave Wild, Chair, FCAA; Les Schaevitz, CEO, Holistic Funding Systems Corporation; Chris Masich, McKercher LLP; Wayne Watts, Liquid Capital Corp.; and Blair Knippel, Deloitte/Saskatchewan Capital Network. Suzanne Paschall of Indie Ink Publishing, and an ambassador of the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada, moderated the event.
My fellow presenters were lively and well-informed.
Dave Wild let it be known during his presentation that Alberta is also looking at adopting the Saskatchewan based start-Up crowdfunding exemption. The image above shows Dave’s slide on where Alberta is highlighted in yellow.
