Canadian securities regulators eye rules on crowdfunding

TORONTO, Feb 27 (Reuters) – Canada’s provincial securities
regulators are looking to extend their jurisdiction to cover
crowdfunding, the grass-roots form of fundraising being pursued
by a growing number of start-ups and small ventures.

The move is part of a broader plan to revise rules around
who is qualified to invest in a publicly-traded company without
first seeing a prospectus.
