egX Canada Launches Investment Dealer Sign-up Campaign

    Trading Symbol: GFG - TSX Venture

    VANCOUVER, June 6 /CNW/ - egX Canada launched its participant sign-up
campaign with the distribution of marketing materials to investment dealers
across Canada. Teams of egX staff are following-up with these investment
dealers to explain the attributes and benefits of the egX marketplace and
sign-up egX Participants. As a sign-up incentive to investment dealers prior
to the launch, the listings application fee as well as the monthly access fees
are waived for a three-year period. These incentives are in addition to the
fact that egX Canada does not charge any trading fees. Our trading system
interface will be compatible with existing investment dealers' order entry
systems. Development and system testing is well underway.
    To become an egX Participant, an investment dealer must be a member of
the Investment Dealers Association of Canada (IDA). For information on how to
