June 1, 2023


This article addresses various policy issues following the notices of approval for significant changes made by CNSX Markets Inc. (the CSE) approved and published by the Ontario Securities Commission and British Columbia Securities Commission on March 30, 2023, to the CSE listing policies and forms (collectively, the Amendments).

The Amendments became effective on April 3, 2023. The Amendments introduce similar standards for listed companies as those required by the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) and NEO Exchange Inc. (NEO). The Amendments are meant to enhance disclosure, provide consistency in certain administrative and reporting requirements, and governance requirements that are consistent with the policies of other Canadian stock exchanges.
