    Rates for removing displayed order volume apply when removing both the disclosed and undisclosed portion of iceberg order volume.

    Rates applicable to ‘Retail' apply for client orders sent by any Trader ID identified by the Member as an ID through which orders originating from a ‘Retail Customer' (as defined by IIROC) are sent, but do not apply for any such ID that is for a ‘DEA client' (as defined in National Instrument 23- 103) unless the ‘DEA client' is a broker / dealer located in a non-Canadian jurisdiction that is acting as an "agent" for retail client order flow.
