It seems that Interactive Brokers does well with this, however, it is my understanding they don't allow foreign equities in registered accounts (TFSA,RRSP)??  Is there another option?
Are the fees reasonable?
Thanks in advance.

Ib does allow USA stocks in rrsp, tfsa which are foreign stocks. It may be possible to buy further ADRs on the US market thus providing even more international exposure if they are listed on a foreign exchange.

Sorry...I should have been clearer. I was referring to markets outside of Canada/US...ie. London, Australia, Germany,France.......

I think generally speaking the big banks will do so for $50-$100/trade. I do anything outside the US/Canada in my non-registered IBKR account.
