We were the first Bitcoin exchange in Canada starting with our beta on June 8th, 2011. VirtEx is run by a registered Alberta Corporation operating in Alberta, Canada. Customer funds are held with Canadian banks in trust accounts. Operating a Bitcoin exchange in Canada is a ground breaking endeavor where legal research and advice is required. We have every intention of complying with any applicable Canadian law and taxation. When choosing us to trade, you can be confident that you are dealing with a company that is performing due diligence for operating in Canada. We are highly rated on the web of trust through our IRC trading (see FAQ). We have also upgraded our site security.
