Can Canadians invest in US stocks and bonds?

Rounding it up

  • Investing in US stocks is an important part of a diversified strategy but may involve complications the Canadian investor should be aware of.

  • If you decide to invest in an account other than a registered retirement account, your gains will be subject to foreign taxes.

  • You should also learn how to navigate — and avoid — foreign transaction fees as they can take a toll.

  • At the end of the day, investing in US stocks is worth your trouble, especially given the close relationship between the two countries.
