Kickstarter To Be Available in Canada This Summer

Kickstarter to allow Canadians to post projects later this summer.

Kickstarter, an American based fund-raising platform for independent creatives, will soon be available to Canadians. The news was broken to the public via their official twitter channel. Right now, as it stands, Canadians can only fund projects if they have a bank account that is situated in the United States. According to the launch page for Canada, this new feature to be able to launch projects of their own is coming later this summer.

The Kickstarter Canadian launch page allows users to submit their email address and the category of the project that they are interesting in funding. From there, Kickstarter will be emailing to let the user know when everything is set and ready to roll. Want to sign up? Just go to the Kickstarter Canadian launch page.
