The Private Capital Markets Association of Canada (PCMA) is pleased to invite you to the 3rd Annual Exempt Market Conference - now called the 2014 PCMA Private Capital Markets Conference that will take place on June 2, 2014 at the Toronto Region Board of Trade.

The Conference will focus on the following theme “Spotlight on the Private Capital Markets & Capital Raising Opportunities” and will include discussion of key issues and opportunities in raising capital in the private capital markets. 

 

Capital raised in the exempt market helps finance economic activity across Canada and is an important contributor to entrepreneurial business, wealth creation for investors and the Canadian economy.
