Canadian National Stock Exchange (CNSX) and The Globe and Mail Expand CNSX Data Distribution

Data on CNSX-listed securities now carried on GlobeInvestor.com, Canada's leading financial website, and GlobeInvestor Solutions to provide data that will be available on CNSX.ca

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 16, 2009) - CNSX Markets Inc. and The Globe and Mail announced that CNSX-listed securities data is now available on its investor websites www.globeinvestor.com and www.globeinvestorgold.com.

In addition, The Globe is now powering significant enhancements on the CNSX website at www.cnsx.ca including:

- Price data and charting features on each CNSX listed company; and

- Corporate fundamentals - a company snapshot

GlobeInvestor.com and GlobeInvestorGold.com are two of the most comprehensive investment tools in Canada, offering real-time and delayed stock prices and data, news and corporate financials. With the addition of CNSX-listed securities, The Globe and Mail has enhanced its coverage of listed securities in Canada.

This initiative follows the successful migration of all CNSX-listed issuers to a three-character stock symbol. CNSX-listed securities also recently migrated to a new trading platform, the same high-performance trading engine used by Pure Trading, CNSX Markets' other facility, which is trading between 15 and 20 million shares per day.

"The profile of CNSX-listed companies will be substantially enhanced by this arrangement, which ensures that investors can obtain CNSX data from Canada's leading investor websites and improves the disclosure on the CNSX website," said William Woods, Managing Director of CNSX Markets Inc. "Since GlobeInvestor Solutions feeds data to a significant number of online discount brokers, this will also increase investors' access to data on CNSX-listed securities."

"The GlobeInvestor Solutions team at The Globe and Mail is pleased to welcome CNSX Markets Inc. as one of its newest clients. The Globe will be rendering a number of data elements to the CNSX web site as part of its white labeling arrangement," said David McNerney the Sales Manager at GloveInvestor Solutions.
