Re:           Policy Amendments:
            (a)      Policy 4.4 - Incentive Stock Options
            (b)      Policy 4.7 - Charitable Options in Connection with an IPO
            (c)      Form 4G - Summary Form - Incentive Stock Options
               

Implementation of Policy Amendments:

Effective immediately, TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV" or the "Exchange") is implementing amendments to Policy 4.4 - Incentive Stock Options ("Policy 4.4").  A significant number of the amendments are for the purpose of clarifying and providing guidance on existing requirements and procedures and, correspondingly, do not constitute either the implementation of new nor the variation of existing policy requirements. Certain of the amendments do, however, constitute new policies.  Principal amongst these is the introduction of new policies which permit an Issuer to grant options to charitable organizations subsequent to listing.  A summary description of the principal amendments to Policy 4.4 is provided below.

In connection with the amendments to Policy 4.4, the Exchange is also concurrently implementing corresponding minor amendments to Policy 4.7 - Charitable Options in Connection with an IPO ("Policy 4.7") and Form 4G - Summary Form - Incentive Stock Options ("Form 4G").  The amendments to Policy 4.7 consist solely of a change to its title and adding a cross-reference to Policy 4.4 to the first paragraph of Policy 4.7.

Full Text of Amended Policies and Forms:

The full text of the amended Policy 4.4 and Policy 4.7 along with a blackline of the amended Policy 4.4 to the June 14, 2010 version of Policy 4.4 (the "Previous Policy 4.4") are available on the TMX Group Inc.'s website at the following page:

http://www.tmx.com/en/listings/venture_issuer_resources/finance_manual.html

The full text of the amended Form 4G is available on the TMX Group Inc.'s website at the following page:

http://www.tmx.com/en/listings/venture_issuer_resources/finance_forms.html

NOTE:  Issuers are required to make use of the new Form 4G effective immediately.

Summary of Principal Amendments to Policy 4.4:

The principal amendments to Policy 4.4 are summarized as follows:

1.   Grant of Options to Eligible Charitable Organizations (section 3.13):  Existing TSXV policies,
specifically Policy 4.7, only permit the grant of options to charitable organizations prior to or in
connection with an Issuer's initial public offering.  Subject to certain conditions set forth in section
3.13, Policy 4.4 now permits Issuer's to grant options to charitable organizations subsequent to
listing.
   
2.   Extension of Option if Expiring During a "Blackout Period" (section 3.8):  Language has been
added to section 3.8 of Policy 4.4 which formalizes TSXV's existing practice of permitting a stock
option plan to contain a provision allowing for the automatic extension to the expiry date of a stock
option governed by the plan if such expiry date falls within a "blackout period".  Specific requirements
are set forth in section 3.8 of Policy 4.4.
   
3.   Shareholder Approval Requirements (section 3.9 and 3.10):  Sections 3.9 and 3.10 of Policy 4.4
(sections 2.9 and 2.10 in the Previous Policy 4.4) have been substantially redrafted to clarify and
provide guidance on the shareholder approval requirements applicable to stock option plans, grants
and amendments. This includes:
     
      a.      Clarifying when shareholder approval is required for amendments to a stock option plan (at
section 3.9(c)).
         
      b.      Clarifying the requirements applicable to granting options under a new or amended stock option
plan prior to such plan having been approved by the shareholders (at sections 3.9(e) and (f)).
         
      c.      Clarifying the Information Circular disclosure requirements that are applicable when an Issuer
seeks shareholder approval of a stock option plan, grant or amendment (at sections 3.9(g) and
3.10(c)).
         
4. TSXV Approval for Amendments to Plans (section 4.1):  Language has been added to section 4.1
of Policy 4.4 to clarify that Exchange acceptance is required for any amendment to a stock option plan.
   

It should be noted that the foregoing is a summary only.  The full text of Policy 4.4 along with the blackline to the Previous Policy 4.4 should be reviewed to ascertain the full extent of the amendments to Policy 4.4 that are being implemented at this time.

Mise en œuvre des modifications des politiques:

La Bourse de croissance TSX procède à la mise en œuvre immédiate des modifications de la Politique 4.4 - Options d'achat d'actions incitatives (la « Politique 4.4 »). Bien qu'une bonne part des modifications vise à éclaircir les exigences et les procédures en vigueur ou à fournir des directives à leur sujet et, par conséquent, ne constitue pas une modification des exigences des politiques actuelles ni la mise en œuvre de nouvelles politiques, certaines modifications constituent toutefois de nouvelles politiques. Parmi celles-ci figurent en premier lieu celles qui permettent à un émetteur, après son inscription à la cote, d'octroyer des options à un organisme de bienfaisance. Vous trouverez ci-dessous une description sommaire des principales modifications apportées à la Politique 4.4.

Conjointement aux modifications de la Politique 4.4, la Bourse apporte des modifications mineures à la Politique 4.7 - Options de bienfaisance dans le cadre d'un premier appel public à l'épargne (« Politique 4.7 ») et au Formulaire 4G - Résumé - Options d'achat d'actions incitatives (« Formulaire 4G »). Les seules modifications apportées à la Politique 4.7 concernent le changement de son titre et l'ajout à son premier paragraphe d'un renvoi à la Politique 4.4.

Libellé intégral des politiques modifiées et du formulaire:

Le libellé intégral des politiques 4.4 et 4.7 modifiées ainsi qu'un document indiquant les modifications par rapport à la version du 14 juin 2010 de la Politique 4.4 (la « version antérieure de la Politique 4.4 ») peuvent être consultés sur le site Web de Groupe TMX Inc. à l'adresse suivante :

Résumé des principales modifications de la Politique 4.4:

Les principales modifications de la Politique 4.4 sont résumées ci-après :

1.
  Octroi d'options aux organismes de bienfaisance admissibles (paragraphe 3.13) : Les
politiques actuelles de la Bourse de croissance TSX, et plus précisément la Politique 4.7, permettent
uniquement l'attribution d'options à des organismes de bienfaisance dans le cadre du premier appel
public à l'épargne d'un émetteur ou avant la clôture de celui-ci. Sous réserve des modalités énoncées
au paragraphe 3.13, la Politique 4.4 permet maintenant à un émetteur d'octroyer des options à un
organisme de bienfaisance après l'inscription à la cote.
     
2.   Reconduction d'une option venant à échéance au cours d'une période de restriction de la
négociation (paragraphe 3.8) : L'ajout au paragraphe 3.8 de la Politique  4.4 officialise la pratique
actuelle de la Bourse de croissance TSX permettant à un régime d'options d'achat d'actions de
comporter une disposition qui prévoit le report automatique de la date d'échéance des options régies
par le régime si cette date tombe au cours d'une période de restriction de la négociation. Les
exigences particulières sont énoncées à ce même paragraphe.
     
3.   Exigences relatives à l'approbation des actionnaires (paragraphes 3.9 et 3.10) : Les
paragraphes 3.9 et 3.10 de la Politique 4.4 (soit les paragraphes 2.9 et 2.10 de la version antérieure
de la Politique 4.4) ont été remaniés en profondeur afin de clarifier les exigences relatives à
l'approbation des actionnaires à l'égard des régimes d'options d'achat d'actions, des attributions et
des modifications, et de fournir des directives à leur sujet. Sont précisées notamment :
     
      a.      les circonstances exigeant l'approbation des actionnaires à l'égard des modifications apportées à
un régime d'options d'achat d'actions (alinéa 3.9c));
         
      b.      les exigences applicables à l'attribution des options dans le cadre d'un nouveau régime d'options
d'achat d'actions ou d'un régime d'options d'achat d'actions modifié avant l'obtention de
l'approbation des actionnaires (alinéas 3.9e) et f));
         
      c.      les exigences en matière de divulgation dans la circulaire d'information qui s'appliquent lorsqu'un
émetteur demande l'approbation des actionnaires à l'égard d'un régime d'options d'achat d'actions,
d'attributions et de modifications (alinéas 3.9g) et 3.10c)).
         
4.   Approbation de la Bourse de croissance TSX à l'égard de la modification des régimes (paragraphe 
4.1) : Le paragraphe 4.1 de la Politique 4.4 a été reformulé de façon à expliciter que l'approbation de la 
Bourse de croissance TSX est requise à l'égard de toute modification d'un régime d'options d'achat d'actions.
