This site is intended to help understand crowdfunding in a Canadian context. It is the continuation of the study Crowdfunding in a Canadian Context: Exploring the Potential of Crowdfunding in the Creative Content Industries. As a living resource, it will be updated on a regular basis and provide up to date and relevant data about the industry. Developed by the Canada Media Fund in collaboration with Nordicity, this online resource includes a working definition of crowdfunding as well as a description of the various crowdfunding models in use. The website provides the latest statistics and data available, suggests best practices, presents case studies based on successful campaigns and explains the regulatory framework and legislative base that govern crowdfunding in Canada.
This online resource is open to external contributions. Are you a platform operator? Have you led a crowdfunding campaign before? Are you an outsider looking in on this new phenomenon? Do you want to know more about a particular aspect of crowdfunding? We want to hear from you!
