A good selection would include at least one of the big five banks (great dividend stocks), mining, energy, commodities and communications. Currency risk is must be factored in and the Canadian dollar is currently almost at par. Based on my own experience and research, here are ten you might want to consider:
Bank of Nova Scotia BNS
Barrick Gold Corporation ABX
Encana Corporation ECA
Goldcorp Inc GG
Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan POT
Rogers Communications Inc RCI
Royal Bank of Canada RY
Suncor Energy SU
Thompson Reuters Corporation TRI
Toronto Dominion Bank TD
