Active products gathered the largest net inflows during June with USD466 million, while equity ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with USD865 million. 

Year-to-date through end of June, ETFs/ETPs listed in Canada have seen net inflows of USD7.64 billion. Equity and active products gathered the largest net inflows year-to-date with USD4.03 billion and USD3.87 billion respectively, while leveraged ETFs/ETPs experienced the largest net outflows with USD218 million.

At the end of June 2018, the Canadian ETF/ETP industry had 613 ETFs/ETPs, with 734 listings, assets of USD120 billion, from 28 providers on two exchanges. ETF/ETP assets have decreased by 1.35 per cent from USD121 billion at the end of May, and increased by 2.26 per cent year-to-date from USD117 billion at the end of 2017.
