The stock market is a great way to earn a return on your money, and Canadians rely on it as an investment vehicle. With so many stocks to choose from, though, it can be tough to know which will give you the best returns.
We conducted research by analyzing Google Trends data to determine which stocks Canadians search for the most, which provides valuable insights into the investment preferences of investors across the country.
The results of the study revealed the top 5 most researched stocks in Canada so far in 2023. Our data stretches from January 1 to February 14, 2023.

Tesla's meteoric rise in the past decade has made it one of the most sought-after investments for many investors. The company's success can be attributed to its innovative products, advanced technology, and strong leadership from CEO Elon Musk.
