I am a non-resident Canadian (currently residing in Hong Kong) and would like to open an investment account in Canada. I understand non-residents cannot buy mutual funds but I would like to trade in Canadian stocks and ETFs. Does TD offer a self-directed trading account to non-residents?

Thank you for the prompt reply. However, that other post deals with investments in mutual funds, which I understand are not open to non-residents of Canada. I am interested in buying Canadian stocks and ETFs, which I think are open to non-residents. I can buy such securities through my US brokerage account but for estate planning purposes I prefer to hold the Canadian stocks and ETFs outside the US. Since I have a relationship with TD through a RRSP/Mutual Funds account I opened prior to becoming non-resident, I would prefer to keep doing business with TD. Does TD offer a self-directed trading account to non-residents?
