Coinbase: Canada's First Registered International Exchange

It’s officially recognized as a Restricted Dealer by the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA).

This registration highlights the global crypto leadership of Coinbase and Canada’s rising role in the crypto economy.

Strengthens Global and Canadian Crypto Ties

The move to register in Canada is part of a series of efforts by Coinbase to establish a strong presence in the country. In August 2023, Coinbase’s official Canadian launch featured the integration of Interac payments through a partnership with Peoples Trust. This integration lets Canadian users easily move CAD in and out of their Coinbase wallets via Interac e-transfers. It significantly boosts cryptocurrency accessibility for millions in Canada.

A key moment in Coinbase’s commitment to Canada was CEO Brian Armstrong‘s visit to Toronto in November 2023. During his stay, Armstrong engaged with Coinbase’s local team, partners, and the broader crypto community. His agenda featured fireside chats with Sid Paquette, Head of RBCx, and Shopify CEO and Coinbase’s board member Tobi Lütke. Armstrong’s media interactions and Q&A with the Coinbase team highlighted the company’s commitment to the Canadian market.
