Top Forex Brokers in Canada

Unlike in the US where traders are permitted to deposit money with nationally-licensed brokers only, Canadian traders are able to trade with nearly any brokerage of their choice. Though only a handful of Forex brokers in Canada that are regulated within the country’s borders, we found that international brokers are both more prevalent and more popular in Canada. Forex brokers offer different services and trading conditions, and choosing the right one will depend predominantly on your trading strategy, and preferences.

Before depositing with any broker, take a look at our top 10 Forex brokers in Canada, chosen for their customer support during Canadian hours, trading conditions and ability to deposit and withdraw funds in CAD.
