What are ETFs?

ETFs are baskets of securities that trade like stocks on an exchange. They usually track an index, but they can also be focused on other types of assets, such as currencies and commodities.

Notes on commissions

1. Canadian exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have been commission-free since September 1, 2016, and U.S. ETFs since August 31, 2017. Trades must involve 100 or more ETF units and must be carried out using our electronic solutions. Clients must also sign up to receive all their documents electronically.

Commission-free ETF trades are not counted when calculating:

  • Free access to trading platforms
  • Active Investor pricing
  • Annual administrative fees

Management and other fees may apply to ETF investments. Please read the prospectus before making an investment. ETFs are not guaranteed; their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
