Toronto’s capital markets: The gateway to North America

The Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) is now, more than ever, a public market destination for international business. Together with the TSX Venture Exchange, the TSX was third in the world for equity capital raised as of late 2012, and is the seventh largest exchange group by market capitalization. With a wide investor base and strong liquidity, the TSX provides access to North American capital markets; fully nine percent of companies listed on the TSX are International Issuers.

The Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) began in 2003 to provide an alternative for Canadian entrepreneurs. The CSE seeks to make public markets more accessible for start-ups. It’s an environment built for new enterprises, making it an excellent option for international companies seeking to enter Canadian markets.
