It sounds like Google will be announcing a Canadian version of Google Finance -- they announced it a bit too early and replaced the original article article with a "woops, check back soon" statement.

Oops. We hit the button too soon. Watch for news about Google Finance in Canada next Tuesday.

But thanks to the internet (or Google should I say?) once it's on the web, it's usually permanent -- no matter how hard you try. So here is the full text of their "deleted" post for your enjoyment.

Posted by Dion Loy, Google Finance engineer We’re pleased to introduce Google Finance Canada, a localized version of Google Finance tailored specifically, as you might guess, for Canadian investors. Canadians are the second largest group of Google Finance users, and as a Canadian myself, I’m excited to see Canadian financial information presented in the familiar easy to use Google Finance format. This new edition includes:

Top financial news from Canadian sources Search with a preference for Canadian companies Front-page high level economic data from the Bank of Canada Portfolios in Canadian currency (or the currency of your choice) Equity data from the Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange, and Canadian mutual funds

In addition, stock quotes and charts for Canadian-listed companies are now available through the Google.com web search.

[Thanks Nate!]
