Google Finance Canada is coming!  Actually, an announcement may have stated that it was already here, but the Official Google Blog has been updated to say, “Oops.  We hit the button too soon.  Watch for news about Google Finance in Canada next Tuesday.”

So what’re we supposed to do, ignore the “Now there’s Google Finance for Canada” headline?  Luckily for fact-hungry folks like me, Ecommerce blogging captured the original post.

“We’re pleased to introduce Google Finance Canada, a localized version of Google Finance tailored specifically, as you might guess, for Canadian investors,” wrote Dion Loy, an engineer for Google Finance.  “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.”

Loy then listed what the service will involve: “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),” and “Equity data from the Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange, and Canadian mutual funds.”

Also, “stock quotes and charts for Canadian-listed companies are now available through the Google.com web search.”  Or “will be” available on Tuesday, given the mix-up.

So I suppose you can consider this a very accurate preview of things to come.  It’s not too often that we’re afforded this sort of glimpse; I, for one, half hope to see Google use the word “oops” much more often in the future.
