Why TD Direct Investing


As Canada's first brokerage for self-directed investors, we led the way in making investing easy, accessible, and affordable for everyone. For over 30 years, we've been driven by a core belief that we can help Canadians reach their financial goals. Today, we're Canada's largest online broker for a reason.1

Invest for yourself not by yourself.

You're not bound by market hours and neither are we. Our knowledgeable, licensed Investment Representatives can help you:

  • Monday to Friday, 7 am to 8 pm ET
  • In English, French, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

An investing experience that puts you in control

Our platforms are the centre of your investing experience. With new features inspired by client feedback, you can be assured that we're listening and we'll never stop innovating. Today, we offer sophisticated desktop platforms with our most advanced tools and a mobile and tablet app for an easy connection to the market and your portfolio.

Your finger on the pulse

For nine years in a row, MoneySense has ranked TD Direct Investing the #1 online brokerage for Market Data2.

Why is this important to you? Because it's your money – and you want deep market intelligence to inform your investing decisions.

Pricing should be easy

We keep our pricing simple and straightforward, so it's easy to determine the cost of every transaction. But we don't stop there: At TD Direct Investing, you get access to a number of extras and value-added services, including educational resources, tools and our powerful trading platforms to invest in Canada and US markets.

Guided learning to build your confidence
