2014-004 CSE Trading Fee Schedule

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- The Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") is pleased to announce changes to its trade execution fees for securities listed on the CSE and the TSX-V. Although the "active/passive" order designation is retained, the existing maker/taker model is being eliminated for CSE- and TSX-V-listed equities. The new fee model is designed to reduce trade execution costs for the dealer community and their clients.

The following trading fee schedule will be effective May 1, 2014.

Trades occurring in the market-on-open facility will have each side designated as active or passive, according to time priority, and will either be charged a fee or earn a rebate on the same terms as in the continuous auction market.

For CSE, TSX and TSX-V listed Debentures or Notes (per $1,000 Par Value)


Fees to Take Liquidity                       $0.09
Rebates for Providing Liquidity              $0.07

For CSE listed Government Bonds

A flat fee of $9.75 per side per trade

In General

Each dealer will be charged a basic monthly participation fee of $500.

The active side of a trade is the order that takes liquidity from the CSE and the passive side of a trade is the order that provides liquidity to the CSE.

Unintentional crosses will have each side designated as active or passive and will be either charged a fee or earn a rebate, as they are part of the continuous auction market.

Intentional crosses will neither be charged a fee nor earn a rebate until further notice.

There will be no minimum monthly trading fee and it is expected that some dealers will be earning a rebate from the CSE each month. For those who prefer, dealers may elect to defer realizing their rebates and instead preserve same as a rolling credit against future fee payments otherwise due to the CSE.

The fees and rebates described above are subject to change.
