Thank you for your interest in the Forex Freestyle App Challenge. We wish all competitions could be open to all countries, but the legal requirements and business organization are both factors. By no means is this a statement as to whether international developers are valued or not -- they are -- rather it's just a logistical matter which is a requirement.
This challenge is not open to users from Canada, but we do encourage you create an app that uses the ForexConnect API. It wouldn't be eligible for this challenge, but we'd be happy to connect you with FXCM. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions.
