by Knowlton Thomas

Kickstarter revealed a bunch of statistics this week surrounding its first month in Canada.

$3.2 million was pledged to just over 300 projects from Canada-based creators during the first month. The money came from 47,000 unique backers. Kickstarter notes that these numbers mean more than $75 each minute.

Successfully funded projects include Little Free Libraries in British Columbia and New Brunswick, a sequel to a beloved video game, a film that launched during the Toronto International Film Fest, and a hockey stick. The biggest project to date has been The Peachy Printer, a 3D printer and scanner project out of Saskatchewan, which has already raised over $600,000, more than 1,167% of its goal.
