FYI - Barclays just launched 4 new Canadian ETFs...

    XMA, XTR, XDV, XRB (all of these are now trading on the TSX).

    XTR in particular is very interesting, it's an "Income Trust Sector Index Fund", I believe it's the first ETF that I've seen thus far that consists of income trusts, could make for an interesting choice for high yield diversified investment.

    Downside of course is that there isn't any historical data for these yet, so one would need to go through all of the income trusts in the ETF to get a sense of what this ETF will likely yield.

    XDV is interesting as well, but to a lesser extent, it's basically a Canadian large cap dividend index fund.
