CanDeal Markets is an online electronic marketplace and data service provider for Canadian dollar debt securities and derivatives. The CanDeal markets division account for more than 90% of electronic trading in Canada for Canadian government, agency, provincial and corporate bonds, as well as money market instruments and interest rate swaps.

CanDeal’s stakeholders include: BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., CIBC World Markets, National Bank Financial Inc., RBC Capital Markets, Scotia Capital, TD Securities and TMX Group.



On June 27, 2001, CanDeal was created by founding shareholders, BMO Nesbitt Burns, Basis100 inc., CIBC World Markets Inc., MoneyLine Network Inc., National Bank Financial Inc., RBC Dominion Securities Inc., Scotia Capital Inc. and TD Securities Inc.[1][2]

The TMX Group acquired a 40 percent stake in CanDeal on July 8, 2002, which then saw its first trade occur on September 10, 2002. The initial products were Canadian government bonds and t-bills. In 2003, CMBs and provincial bonds would be added for trading.[3]

The founder of CanDeal, Jayson Horner, would become the full-time president and CEO of CanDeal, after leaving TD Securities at the end of 2002.

In February of 2003, CanDeal buys Basis100's equity interest in CanDe3al along with the rights to the BasisXchange trading platform in Canada.[4]

In August of 2004, the aggregate volume traded on CanDeal surpassed C$100 billion as CanDeal had over 100 unique institutional users executing trades.[5]

In October of 2004, CanDeal surpassed C$1 billion in trading volume and December of 2004 traded C$10 billion in a single month.

CanDeal created a new division in 2005 named Revolution Trading, powered by Trayport's GlobalVision Broker Trading System. Revolution Trading is an electronic inter-dealer direct access trading platform and was initially used to trade Canadian government bonds and provide post trade straight through processing.[6]

CanDeal would buyout another partner in 2005 when it acquired Moneyline's shares. When they redeemed Moneyline's shares, TMX's stake in CanDeal grew to 47 percent.[7]

Volume continued to grow and in 2007, CanDeal announced it had surpassed the one trillion Canadian dollar mark in aggregate volume traded since inception.[8]

In 2010, CanDeal would launch CanDeal Mobile, a real-time, mobile pricing application for benchmark government bond and treasury bill issues.[9]
