TMX's Pledge to Canada's Markets

TMX is working in close consultation and coordination with our clients, regulators and government representatives to fulfill our core mission in operating Canada's markets.

The markets are functioning well and doing what they are designed to do: provide investors with liquidity and ensure issuers have a world-class venue to raise capital.

We feel strongly that it is in the public interest and in the best interest of all of our stakeholders, including issuers, investors, and market participants, that the markets remain open.

We pledge to continue working with all our partners to ensure that remains the case and will share any further updates as necessary.
