Modernizing regulation to support fintech innovation.

OSC LaunchPad Rocket The Ontario Securities Commission's OSC LaunchPad engages with fintech businesses, provides the opportunity for support in navigating the requirements, and strives to keep regulation in step with digital innovation.

Securities regulation may apply to you if your business involves:

  • Digital platforms that connect investors with firms seeking to raise capital.
  • Lending platforms that allow investors to fund loans (or portions of loans).
  • Technology and/or data-driven investment activities or advice, including online advice.
  • Investor networks and organizations, and the platforms that support them.
