Our History

When Exempt Edge started in January of 2017, no software solutions existed for companies operating in the Private Capital Market of Canada. Our goal was simple – create robust software solutions specifically for Exempt Market Dealers, Mortgage Investment Entities, and Issuers raising capital in this space. We build technology solutions for the Private Capital Markets of Canada. With over 30 years of combined experience in the exempt market, Exempt Edge brings a level of expertise not found anywhere else.

Exempt Edge acquired the proprietary in-house software solution; ROOTS, which had been developed over seven years by the second-largest exempt market dealer in the country: Raintree Financial Solutions. With this acquisition, Exempt Edge added one of the top securities lawyers in the country along with a group of experienced software developers to their team.
