Modernizing regulation to support fintech innovation

OSC LaunchPad Rocket OSC LaunchPad engages with fintech businesses, assists them in navigating the requirements and strives to keep regulation in step with digital innovation.

In short, we help fintechs avoid costly regulatory surprises and accelerate time-to-market, all while fulfilling our mandate to provide protections to investors and promote confidence in our markets.

Securities regulation may apply to you if your business involves:

  • Digital platforms that connect investors with companies seeking to raise capital.
  • Initial token offerings (ITOs), initial coin offerings (ICOs), crypto-asset trading platforms, exchanges or marketplaces, or crypto-asset funds and fund management.
  • Investor networks and organizations and the platforms that support them.
  • Lending platforms that allow investors to fund loans (or portions of loans).
  • Technology and/or data-driven investment activities or advice, including online advice.
