7. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
In 2017, the Company adopted the Security Devices International Inc. 2017 Stock Option Plan (the "2017 Plan") for the issuance of stock options and other stock-based awards, authorizing 9,379,857 shares of the Company's common stock to be issued. On December 19, 2017, the 2017 Plan was amended to increase the number of shares reserved for issuance from 9,379,857 to 18,993,274.
At the time that the 2017 Plan was adopted, the Company was trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"). On October 15, 2018, the Company ceased trading on the TSX and was listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange ("CSE"). As part of this change, the Company amended the 2017 Plan to allow for the exercise of options under the 2017 Plan to be traded on the CSE. Accordingly, on October 13, 2019, the Board approved the first amendment to the 2017 Plan (the "First Amendment"). The First Amendment amends the 2017 Plan for specific rules and definitions that must be adhered to on the CSE. All other provisions of the 2017 Plan remain. The First Amendment is subject to approval by the majority of the Company's shareholders which may be obtained by consent or by vote at a general or special meeting of the shareholders.
