Canadian ETF knowledgebase

ETF Sage has all you need to know about Canada-listed ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) including a comprehensive breakdown on every (280+) Canada-listed ETF.

ETFs are excellent investment vehicles offering diversification at a low cost. You can use them to avoid the excessive fees charged by Canadian mutual funds (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.
