The popularity of exchange-traded funds continues to accelerate in Canada at a record-breaking rate. Last year alone, more than $26-billion flowed into ETFs, with 11 new providers in the Canadian market alone. The options for constructing a low-cost, effective portfolio using ETFs have never been greater, and fees are continuing to come down.
