ETF knowledgebase for Canadians

ETF Sage is a free ETF knowledgebase for Canadians. It has all you need to know about Canadian-listed ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) including a comprehensive breakdown on every (280+) Canadian-listed ETF.

ETFs are a low cost and better alternative to mutual funds. You can use them to avoid the tyranny of Canadian mutual fund fees (rated the worst in a global 24-country survey by Morningstar).

Switching from mutual funds to ETFs could save you tens of thousands in fees:
