S&P/TSX Index Eligibility

The S&P/TSX suite of indices provides investable indices for the Canadian equity markets and international global mining markets.

The headline and broadest index, the S&P/TSX Composite Index, has provided investors with a premier indicator of market activity for Canadian equity markets since its launch in 1977. With approximately 95% coverage of the Canadian equities market, it is the primary gauge for Canadian-based, TSX-listed companies.

The S&P/TSX Composite Index serves the dual purpose of a benchmark and an investable index. The index is designed to offer the representation of a broad benchmark index while maintaining the liquidity characteristics of narrower indices. This unique combination makes the S&P/TSX Composite Index ideal for portfolio management and index replication.
