    It depends on what you are looking to trade.

    Etrade, TDWaterhouse, and Datek. I've had accounts with all 3, but my favorite is, by far, Datek.

    Hmm... "At the present time, Daytek does not accept new applications from Canadian residents"... looks like that option is out.

    Too bad Datek isn't accepting any more Canadian applications... I wonder why?
    The trading fees are low ($9.99 flat per trade) and I love the speed (under 60 seconds or the trading fee is waived). The Datek Streamer applet is very convenient, and its interface is a lot more intuitive than other sites.
