Canadian Securities Exchange Presents The Summit on Responsible Investment

Inaugural conference in Kelowna focuses on investing in a better tomorrow

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 7, 2023) - The Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE" or "the Exchange") is pleased to invite the Canadian investment community to participate in its first ever Summit on Responsible Investment, taking place in Kelowna, British Columbia on June 27, 2023. The event, which is presented by the CSE and Sparx Publishing Group, will provide a comprehensive look at investing in a better tomorrow.

The summit is taking place at a time when socially responsible investing (SRI) and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have become increasingly critical topics for market participants to navigate. Attendees will gain valuable insights into these issues from a diverse group of entrepreneurs, investors and other changemakers.


The morning session will be devoted to expert speakers. Beginning with a keynote address from Dr. Victoria Hurth of the Cambridge Institute for Sustainable Leadership, speakers will discuss the importance of responsible governance and the purpose-driven economy, how companies can position themselves in an environment of heightened ESG standards, how to comprehend and navigate reporting, disclosure and rating systems, how these tools are applied in responsible investing, and much more. The speakers represent organizations including Socialsuite, Dentons, MNP, Sophic Capital, Varshney Group and JDS Resources Inc. The full line-up of speakers is available here.

The afternoon session will feature a company showcase. Senior executives from firms in sectors such as health and wellness, cleantech and mining will talk about their efforts to promote sustainability, social justice and corporate ethics. The line-up of innovative companies includes several CSE-listed issuers: Beyond Oil Ltd. (BOIL), Boosh Plant-Based Brands Inc. (VEGI), Enertopia Corp. (ENRT), FendX Technologies Inc. (FNDX), First Phosphate Corp. (PHOS), First Tellurium Corp. (FTEL), Pangea Natural Foods Inc. (PNGA), and Sharc International Systems Inc. (SHRC).

"The Canadian Securities Exchange is focused on providing our issuers and the investment community with insights and up-to-date information on topics of relevance in the financial markets. Responsible investment is an important theme influencing markets at present, making this an ideal time to hold this conference," said Richard Carleton, CEO of the CSE.
