Financial Technology & Innovation
Financial technology (fintech) encompasses a range of business models and emerging technologies that bring innovation to the financial sector. It is an industry marked by rapid, constant change, in which innovations can significantly impact how businesses operate.
As businesses evolve, we encourage management to actively seek guidance on how the operational and fundraising activities of the business fit within existing regulations, including the securities regulatory framework.
The British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) has issued guidance and produced resources to help fintech companies operating or planning to operate in BC. The links on this page provide more information about the intersection of securities regulation and the fintech industry.
The BCSC has historically been flexible and innovative in its approach to securities regulation. We work with industry to ensure that our approach to securities regulation evolves alongside a dynamic economy.
