Full transparency in our fees

Nobody likes surprises—especially on their monthly statement. In the interest of being fully transparent and forthcoming with our pricing, we’re listing all the fees that you could possibly incur as a Questrade customer. The following fees are behaviour-based, so you may never see them—but if you do, rest assured we’re keeping them low.

Exchange fees

Electronic communication networks (ECNs) and alternative trading systems (ATSs) are intermediaries that connect brokers to the market. They facilitate all transactions and add liquidity to the markets. ECNs apply to U.S. listed securities while ATSs apply to Canadian securities. In general, ECNs and ATSs charge fees whenever an order removes liquidity from the market. This may add on to the cost of your trade in addition to general commissions.

How to avoid exchange fees

Unlike SEC fees, ECN and ATS fees are avoidable. We’ll show you how.

Inactivity fees

We charge inactivity fees on very specific occasions. These fees are charged in any quarter to customers who:

  • Have not placed a trade in the previous quarter
  • Have less than $5,000 in investment/cash in all of their account(s), including joint accounts

How to avoid inactivity fees

Inactivity fees are totally avoidable and there are also certain exemptions that apply. We’ll show you how you can avoid them, qualify for the exemption and getting them refunded as commissions the next quarter.
