Is Binance legal in Canada? Binance is leaving Ontario: What it means for Cryptocurrency in Canada 👋

Join Coinsquare

You’ve probably heard by now that Binance announced it will no longer be serving clients in Ontario after December 31st, 2021. This has left many Canadians confused, wondering if Binance will still be legal everywhere else in Canada and for how much longer. 

What’s next for Binance and Crypto in Canada?

Binance has advised Ontario users to “take immediate measures to close out all active positions.” Other exchanges such as Bybit, Poloniex, and KuCoin have received a warning from the Ontario Securities Commission for failing to comply with the province’s securities laws. 

Canadian regulators have been providing guidelines that all crypto trading platforms with Canadian clients must comply with. These guidelines maintain the balance between the interests of the Canadian capital markets and encourage investor protection. We shared our thoughts on Canadian crypto regulation with CoinTelegraph – you can read all about it here.
