Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange Seek Public Comment on Listing 
Guidelines for Emerging Market Issuers 
TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and TSX Venture 
Exchange (TSXV) today published a joint Consultation Paper on Emerging Market 
Issuers. The Consultation Paper examines the risks associated with listings 
from emerging markets and solicits feedback on possible measures being 
considered to complement existing and well-established guidelines, rules and 
standards at TSX and TSXV. 
Kevan Cowan, President, TSX Markets and Group Head of Equities, TMX Group, 
said: 
"Our primary objective is to maintain and enhance our strong global reputation 
as an operator of quality exchanges. As emerging economies expand and global 
capital flows increase, issuers from these markets will continue to seek a 
Canadian listing to help fund growth and innovation. The integrity of our 
markets requires all issuers, regardless of their location, to adhere to the 
same high standards. We are committed to working with issuers, securities 
regulators as well as a broad group of stakeholders who share a combined 
responsibility to promote integrity and investor confidence in Canadian 
markets." 
The Consultation Paper was developed with extensive input received from market 
participants, listed issuers, advisors, other stakeholders and regulatory 
organizations. It is intended to support work being conducted by 
regulatory organizations, the primary authorities overseeing reporting 
issuers, including the Ontario Securities Commission Issuer Guide for 
Companies Operating in Emerging Markets (Staff Notice 51-720) published in 
November of this year. 
Comments are being solicited in areas such as emerging market issuer 
management, corporate governance, financial reporting, internal controls, 
related party transactions and sponsorship requirements, among others. The 
comment period will continue to February 28, 2013.
