CFMRC-TSE Database

Access

Overview

The Canadian Financial Markets Research Centre (CFMRC) Summary Information Database of TSE data covers: daily and monthly Toronto Stock Exchange trading data about specific securities; price adjustments data such as dividends, stock splits, recapitalizations, etc.; daily and monthly index data; and selected other financial markets information. The database is composed of two parts: common equities and preferred equities.

For the University of Toronto users, there are two portals open for data accessibility:

  1. If you are a new user or wish to eliminate the need for programming, then the web-based access is the right solution for you. The information has been organized in a SQL database with a web-enabled interface that you can access through the CHASS Datacenter - CFMRC-TSE Database. This interface is 'point and click' and produces an output in plain, html, or csv format.

  2. For users with a more elaborate computer background or those who wish for added flexibility in the type of data they can retrieve, the Finance Lab has created a direct access database on the Finance Lab Server. This portal is only accessible from a computer connected to the University's network.
