The Toronto Stock Exchange has the highest number of listed companies in the oil and gas industry as well as the mining industry. Toronto Stock Exchange history begins in 1861 when it was officially created by twenty-four businessmen in Toronto. In 1934, TSX and its chief competitor known at the time as Standard Stock and Mining Exchange merged into one group. This merger made the TSX exchange the largest mining exchange in the world. As the TSX market grew, it soon became a hot spot for oil and gas companies. The list on the Toronto Stock Exchange has grown to over 400 companies.
The Toronto Stock Exchange index is the S&P/TSX Composite Index. This is an index of the prices of the largest companies as a measurement of their market capitalization.
