High Returns from Our
Resource-Rich Neighbor


Did you know that for the past several years, blue-chip Canadian stocks have outperformed the S&P 500 by a wide margin, aided by the rapid rise of the Canadian dollar which appreciated almost 17% against the U.S. dollar in 2007 alone?

The Canada Report provides expert insight into the best investment opportunities available in America’s northern neighbor. It is designed for U.S investors who seek international diversification and wish to add Canadian securities to their portfolios. Our contributing editors, all of whom are based in Canada, include some of the country’s leading money managers, financial commentators, and business people.

More and more Americans are investing money in Canada, for several reasons. They include:

Huge energy reserves. The vast Alberta Oil Sands make Canada second only to Saudi Arabia in terms of proved and probable reserves. And all that oil is right on America’s doorstep, not half a world away.

A strong economy. For several years, Canada has led the G7 countries in economic growth. Unlike the U.S., the country enjoys a perpetual trade surplus.

A powerhouse currency. Since 2002, the Canadian dollar has appreciated more than 60% against the U.S. dollar.

Sound fiscal policy. Canada’s federal government has run a budgetary surplus every year for the past decade, paying down the national debt in the process.

Political stability. Canada is a stable Parliamentary democracy, with deep-seated traditions of human rights and tolerance.

A strong banking system. Canada’s big five banks are among the strongest financial institutions in the world, and were relatively unscathed by the subprime mortgage crisis.

Great profit potential. Canada offers a wide range of investment opportunities, including some of the world’s leading gold, uranium, coal, base metal, and potash producers as well as high-tech giants like Research in Motion.

The Canada Report has been created for conservative investors who are looking for high-quality securities with above-average profit potential. We believe that Canada is in a unique position to provide these opportunities and our mandate is to deliver that information to you in practical, down-to-earth terms, month after month.
