Wealthsimple Trade Referral Program


Updated on May 12, 2022: Markets can move fast. So, Wealthsimple Trade now provides unlimited price alerts for free. With price alerts, you can set custom notifications for any stock, crypto, or ETF you’d like to watch. Translation: you can now ditch the separate apps to keep tabs on the market.

Updated on Oct 9, 2021: If you want to open a new Wealthsimple Trade non-registered personal account, please use our referral link (or sign up code: QAZA3G), thanks: https://my.wealthsimple.com/app/public/trade-referral-signup?code=QAZA3G . You will earn the cash equivalent of TWO random stocks (average value ~$30). And you will have your own referral link after registration. If you like a TFSA / RRSP account, you can sign up it after you receive the referral bonus. Due to regulatory restrictions, Quebec residents will not qualify to receive a randomized stock bonus. Instead, Quebec residents will get the cash equivalent of a fixed stock worth no less than $20 based on the stock value at the time of selection. 


Wealthsimple Trade is Canada's first $0 commission stock trading app. Wealthsimple Trade lets you buy and sell thousands of stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on major Canadian and U.S. exchanges with $0 commissions on any trades. And you can start trading as little as $1. Note: Wealthsimple Trade is NOT Wealthsimple Invest. Wealthsimple Invest is an automated investing service that manages your investments for you using a personalized portfolio of low-fee ETFs. From my point of view, I like Wealthsimple Trade most.

How to buy Bitcoin in Canada

Updated on May 11, 2022: Added introduction on Netcoins platform.

Updated on Apr 9, 2022: I am not asking you to buy Bitcoin or any cryptocurrencies here. Cryptocurrencies investment has very high risks.

If you want to open a new Netcoins account, please use our referral link: https://netcoins.app/r?ac=13S8HS , and you can earn $60 when you make your first trade of CAD $100 cryptocurrencies. Thanks for your support.

Bitcoin price is around USD $40,000 on Jun 16, 2021. Some friends asked me recently how to buy Bitcoin in Canada. So, I would like to introduce the options for Canadians to buy bitcoin today. Note: I am NOT recommending or suggesting that you should buy those cryptocurrencies, and you should always do your research to make informed investing decisions. All I provide here is just an introduction of the workflow. From my point of view, I prefer Shakepay and Newton exchange platforms.

  • Both would extend an elite status up until December 31, 2023

  • Spend $30,000 on any purchase for 30,000 points (all purchases earn a minimum of 1x)
  • Spend $5,000 with Air Canada (7,500 points at 1.5x), $10,000 with gas / grocery (15,000 points at 1.5x), and $7,500 with any other purchase (7,500 points at 1x) for an equal total of 30,000 points
  • Both would extend an elite status up until December 31, 2023
