The largest stock exchange in Canada. Tracing its roots to the 1850s, the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1997 became one of the largest exchanges in North America to close its trading floor and begin operations electronically. It is a leader in the oil, gas, and mining industries, with more such companies trading on it than on any other exchange in the world.
