Practice Account

Practice Accounts are not a demo—they are integrated into our actual online investing site. You can practice placing trades and get the same online experience as with a real account. Best of all, you risk nothing.

For example, you can use a Practice Account to:

  • Buy and sell different types of investments including stocks, ETFs and options
  • Try out our tools and resources
  • Track your holdings over time to see how you’re doing
  • Activate a Practice Account for free in just minutes
  • Enjoy risk–free investing using our actual online investing site
  • Access the tools and education you need to become a better investor
  • Open multiple Practice Accounts, including a Cash, Margin and RRSP account

Get started today. Receive $100,000 of no-risk "practice money" per Practice Account.
