++ Action Item: Download today the 26 page CATA ICC (Invest Crowdfund Canada) Submission to the OSC (Ontario Securities Commission) on Crowdfunding at this URL:
Over the last twelve months, CATA ICC (Invest Crowdfund Canada) has brought together a voluntary network of 100 professionals of influence & community leadership from coast to coast to work with Provincial security regulators, Small businesses, City of Toronto Economic Development (Technicity), Government Officials, Media & PR, Universities, Mayors, Angels, VC's, EMDAs, Lawyers, NACO, Private Equity Firms, Banks, Accountants.
These Community Change Agents are striving to modernize our country to be a more Intelligent Nation. We also have a petition of over 300 community leader signatures supporting the need to open up access to support equity crowdfunding, as other countries have successfully achieved.
Change is never easy. Once it was the rail road tie consultations to unite our borders. Now it's the digital byte by byte social ties that unite corporate finance with community & accredited investors to the reality of portal transactions that are secure & trusted to purchase securities to help fund early stage ventures. What is clear is that change is inevitable, just a question of time.
Until we have coast to coast harmonization to support equity crowdfunding for all Canadians, CATA ICC will continue to be a voice advocating the imperative for legislative changes to successfully enable Equity Crowdfunding for Canadians coast to coast.
