Canadian National Stock Exchange Announces New Listing Fee Discount 60% Saving for Companies Listed in Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 15, 2013) - CNSX Markets Inc. (operator of the Canadian National Stock Exchange or "CNSX") today announced an initiative designed to provide relief from the high costs of maintaining a public listing on other Canadian stock exchanges. Companies applying to switch their listing to CNSX between July 15 and September 30 of this year will receive a 60% discount off of the fees charged to new CNSX applicants. Once listed, these companies will take advantage of the benefits currently enjoyed by CNSX's nearly 200 current listed issues:

  • Costs and overhead are contained by virtue of CNSX's flat monthly maintenance fee - no additional fees for filings, ordinary course transactions, or a percentage charged of new financings raised for the company by the exchange
  • Maintain market access and liquidity on a transparent auction market for Canadian investors - the only Canadian exchange to offer free real-time data via Google Finance
  • Management and administrative time is saved by operating within CNSX's streamlined regulatory environment

The fee reduction brings the price of an initial listing on CNSX down to $5,000. Richard Carleton, CEO, stated "Given the current corporate finance challenges for early stage and established companies, CNSX is offering an incentive to enable more companies to take advantage of our superior exchange model. Companies can spend less money on maintaining their listing, leaving more resources and time to invest in growing their businesses."

The listing process on CNSX is straightforward and readily attainable for public companies that meet the exchange's listing requirements for public float, working capital or revenues. Listing requirements and forms are available on and exchange staff known for their customer service can be contacted by email to
