Raising funds for your business can be a challenge. Crowdfunding — collecting financial contributions from many strangers not usually connected to the financial sector — represents an alternative to traditional forms of financing your business dream.

Participating in online communities dedicated to this type of fundraising can help you collect donations, offer rewards and take pre-orders.

It is being considered by other provincial and territorial securities regulators and could become an option in those regions. Stay informed about what you can and can’t do.
