Here are the 100 largest mutual funds in Canada as ranked by Fundata Canada Inc. according to total assets at Dec. 31, 2017. Assets for all the various series of a fund are grouped together, while returns and fees are shown for the series with the longest history. Fund and benchmark returns are 10-year annualized returns to Dec. 31, 2017. Note: Return numbers are rounded - this explains why the differential between fund and benchmark return may appear not to add up in some cases.*
