Foreign investors sold CAD 1.17 billion of Canadian securities in July 2019, after selling an upwardly revised CAD 4.06 billion in the previous month.

Meanwhile, the investment in Canadian equities amounted CAD 1.9 billion, it was the first investment in five months. Also, non-resident investors purchased CAD 1.5 billion in bonds, as strong foreign acquisitions of corporate bonds were partially offset by a divestment in government bonds.
