Companies listed on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange are major producers and developers of key natural resources
Many domestic and foreign investors recognize the opportunity in companies listed on Canada’s leading equity exchanges, Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV).
More than 3,700 of these companies, at widely varying stages of development, are wellpositioned to meet current and future global demand for energy, natural resources, technological innovation and food supply.
As the world’s top exchange group for natural resource listings, companies listed on TSX and TSXV will help meet some of the most pressing global challenges. For example, as a provider of raw materials, Canada ranks among the top five producers in the world for major minerals and metals, including zinc, uranium, aluminum, titanium and nickel. The country is also a major producer of gold, platinum and diamonds, as well as iron ore, potash and natural gas.
Companies listed on TSX and TSXV are major producers and developers of key natural resources. The Exchanges have attracted more than 1,600 of the world’s public mining companies, with almost 10,000 projects around the world, half of which are outside of Canada. In fact, almost 60 per cent of the world’s public mining companies are listed on TSX and TSXV, and 70 per cent of all global equity financings in mining were conducted on the Exchanges in 2012.
Canada also has the second largest reserves of oil in the world, after Saudi Arabia, and Canadian companies develop world-class technology to extract hydrocarbons.
It’s worth noting that Canada’s global contributions go well beyond natural resources. Over 400 companies listed on the Exchanges are involved in technology, clean technology and life sciences, and they’re well-positioned to contribute now and into the future. Nearly 120 clean technology companies, for example, are listed on TSX and TSXV, and have a market capitalization of roughly $20 billion. Their products and know-how will be increasingly relevant in a rapidly evolving green economy, and investors continue to find opportunities in the sector.
