This past summer, the CSE team set out to meet and greet entrepreneurs all across Canada.
From Bay St boardrooms to Alberta badlands and a few golf courses on either side , the CSE team had a great time connecting with listed issuers as well as with folks interested in learning more about how the CSE can help junior companies improve access to the lowest-cost of public capital.
Check out the highlights from this summer’s adventures below and be sure to stay on top of all of our upcoming events by visiting the new and enhanced events calendar here or by following us on Twitter or Facebook.
Calgary Stampede Pre-Stampede Breakfast
The CSE was thrilled to welcome a record setting crowd to this year’s breakfast (150+!), an annual institution for the CSE and its network of friends and supporters in Calgary.
Along with a healthy spread of pancakes, sausage, and other breakfast staples, the crowd was treated to a welcome address from CSE CEO Richard Carleton who dusted off his best western wear for the occasion.

Summer Golf was in full swing for the CSE in August, where amateur golfers across the organization gathered to crush drives, sink puts, and network over 18 holes of scenic golf courses.
Our team hosted the first annual Montreal Summer Golf at the members only Mr. Bruno Country Club – an event so exclusive we could not even take photos! Rumour has it that it was a competitive round highlighted by exceptional play of CSE Senior Advisor Scott Pritchard.
Toronto was also on the tour, where Senior VP Rob Cook and Director – Listed Company Services Barrington Miller showcased their game at the TechConnex golf tournament.
Finally, in Vancouver, another “first annual” golf tourney was hosted at Northlands Golf Course – where a group of 24 played a friendly round of Texas scramble on what was agreed to be “the nicest day of the year” – a claim supported by the photos included in this gallery.
Canadian Securities Traders Association Conference
A marquee event of any Summer is the annual CSTA (Canadian Securities Traders Association) Conference – held this year in beautiful Whistler, BC.
Often a productive mix of both business and pleasure, the CSE managed to strike a good balance between both.
From a business perspective, CSE CEO Richard Carleton participated on the much anticipated marketplaces panel, lending his thoughts on the status of exchanges and leading trends in the trading world.
Afterward, CSE offered up an equally substantial piece of hospitality, hosting an exclusive dinner at the renown Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar. A truly spectacular meal (accompanied by choice wines) was followed by an impromptu lottery and betting pool in anticipation of the Tragically Hip’s final song during the next evening’s concert.
The trader spirit was in full effect!
