Vancouver Stock Exchange (VAN) .V

The Vancouver Stock Exchange (VAN) .V – (VSE) is a defunct stock exchange formerly located in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was incorporated in 1903 as the third largest marketplace in Canada behind the Toronto Stock Exchange and Montreal Stock Exchange. The exchange originally featured small capitalization, mining, oil and gas exploration stocks. By the early 1990s, however, the Vancouver exchange grew into a specialty market for venture capital securities. Today, the Vancouver Stock Exchange falls under the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) umbrella after a merger with the Canadian Venture Exchange in 1999.
