Essentials for Great Canadian Companies at Your Fingertips

September 11, 2014

TSX and TSXV launched TSX IgniteTM earlier this year – a national program designed to help Canadian companies grow and develop, with a primary focus on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The program provides companies and entrepreneurs – at all stages of growth and from all sectors, both private and public – with tools and resources to help them reach their full potential. TSX and TSXV worked with leading experts and advisors from across Canada to assemble information and best practices. Over 20 Canadian law firms, accounting firms and investment banks collaborated to provide input and content on all aspects of the program.

TSX Ignite consists of two main components:

  • Live events held in seven cities across the country to provide free information relevant to a company's growth plans, including tips on raising capital and factors to consider when growing a company and hiring advisors. Three live events have been held so far this year, kicking off in Toronto last April. More than 530 entrepreneurs, managers and owners of SMEs have registered to attend to date, with the next event scheduled in Halifax on September 16th.
  • The website,, is home to the program's Learning Channel and other resources. Canadian entrepreneurs can participate in online courses and gather expertise in 60-second videos from high-profile Canadian business leaders.

The Learning Channel consists of four online courses: Attracting Investors; Why Governance Matters; Best Practices for Financial Controls and Growth; and Acquisitions for Growth. These webinars feature leading figures in the Canadian business landscape that provide their insight on how to build and grow great companies.

Entrepreneurs are pioneers that like to create their own destiny. Yet seeking business advice from seasoned experts is important to any business owner, whether they are just starting up or well established. Through the Learning Channel, we have assembled what we think is useful expert information that will prove beneficial to any ambitious entrepreneur.
