CANADA........Ontario Securities Regulator Approves TokenFunder ICO

Months after the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) issued a public statement on the blockchain use case, declaring that that some offerings would trigger the agency's oversight, the Commission has given its blessing to an initial coin offering set to launch at the start of next month.

In a decision posted online Oct. 23, the OSC approved the token sale organized by TokenFunder, which is developing a platform for projects aiming to raise funds through coin sales of their own. The company is aiming to raise roughly $10 million, with the sale set to commence on Nov. 1.

Fireinthebone gathered that the issue is the first for the province of Ontario with the backing of a regulatory agency. 

In a statement released recently, the agency struck an optimistic tone about the approval, remarking that  "It is important that we continue to foster innovative new ways to raise capital and invest, and this announcement is a testament to the dedicated support we are providing in this space."

As part of the legal framework surrounding the campaign, TokenFunder will be treating its coin offering as a security. Similarly, the token management platform the company will launch will be classifying future offerings as securities.

TokenFunder follows Quebec-based Impak Finance as one of the first companies in Canada to launch an ICO under the oversight of a provincial regulator.
