egX Canada is Granted Exemption Order by the Ontario Securities Commission

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 17, 2008) - egX Group (TSX VENTURE:EGX) is pleased to report that the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has granted an exemption order to egX Canada and egX Group, authorizing egX Canada to carry on business as a stock exchange in that province. The exemption is based on the recognition order from the British Columbia Securities Commission, which is the principal regulator of egX Canada.

egX Canada was developed in response to the world-wide trend towards the securitization of real estate and the growing demand for transparency and disclosure in that industry. egX Canada will offer a regulated, transparent and liquid marketplace for real estate and infrastructure securities. egX Canada will provide new investment opportunities for retail and institutional investors and offer issuers increased access to the capital markets, at a time when the credit markets are tightening.

"We have worked closely with the OSC through the application process and we are extremely pleased to have received an exemption order in Ontario. We look forward to working with the real estate and financial industries in Ontario as we launch egX Canada," stated Mary Wong, President of egX Canada.
