An initial public offering (IPO) is the traditional method of obtaining a listing on a stock exchange. This method involves the preparation of a prospectus to be filed with the securities commissions, and then completion of an application for a public listing. The prospectus provides potential investors with detailed information they need to make informed investment decisions.

Successful completion of a prospectus requires the co-operation of management, legal counsel, auditors, securities commissions and Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) or TSX Venture Exchange.
