Investing in Canada used to be expensive and intimidating, controlled by only a few financial institutions. That all changed when Questrade opened its doors in 1999. Founded on the idea that Canadians need a company that truly cares about their financial success and security, Questrade ushered in an era of low fees and even lower commissions.
Since then, Questrade has tirelessly challenged the status quo and grown into Canada’s leading non-bank online brokerage firm. By leveraging technology, Questrade has reduced costs, passed the savings on to Canadian investors, and equipped investors with essential trading tools to make confident decisions.
