On June 2, the PCMA Vancouver Chapter held its first
breakfast meeting in cooperation with Borden Ladner Gervais
LLP (BLG).The main objectives of these PCMA Chapter events
are education and updates regarding regulatory and market
developments as well as opportunity for networking.
As a first Chapter event the turn out was great with over
50 participants including Exempt Market Dealers (EMDs),
service providers and issuers. The key topics discussed at
this event included:
• Changes in the private placement rules including the new
Start-up Crowdfunding Exemption in BC and five other provinces
• Client Relationship Model - 2 for EMDs
• Recent changes to registration rules impacting EMDs
There were numerous questions and a vigorous discussion,
which confirms the need for local chapter events focused
on new and existing regulation, challenges and key market
developments. Thank you to BLG for co-sponsoring this event.

PCMA Welcomes Founding Sponsors
The PCMA is pleased to share that on October 22, 2015, a
new membership fee was introduced for the “Individuals and EMD
Dealing Representatives” member category.
It is now only $99 + tax. Please share this great news with your
colleagues and other professionals in the private capital markets
industry and invite them to join the PCMA!
All PCMA members who joined at our previous fee level in
