Every month we host a local event in Saskatoon to share new ideas and network called Ideas on Tap. We recorded our last IoT a couple weeks ago and here are the demos.

Saskatoon Community Wind - James Glennie

We are a community-led initiative. We want to build a 10-turbine wind farm which will be developed and owned by thousands of individuals from the Saskatoon region. It will be located 15-30 kilometers outside of Saskatoon. There will be millions of dollars of local investment, hundreds of local jobs, great economic returns and clean electricity for 16,000 people.

Saskatchewan Crowdfunding Proposal - Dave Wild, Financial and Consumer Affairs

The Saskatchewan crowdfunding proposal would waive registration and prospectus requirements for small securities offerings.  It is intended to be used by start-up and small businesses to raise small amounts of capital from the “crowd” through an electronic portal. We are consulting on this proposal and welcome your thoughts. Would it be useful?  What refinement does it need?  We welcome your thoughts.
