Inverse 10 Yr Gov Bond ETF. Basically going short on 10-year Canada. His view on a 10-year total return basis is low. Returns will be below 2%-3% over the next 1-2 years. Shorting bonds costs money because you have to pay the coupons. Not a buy and hold strategy.

Cdn Corp Bond ETF. Probably provides best exposure to Canadian corporations. Probably yielding 3%-3.5%. Holds everything from 1 year to 30-year bonds. You could also look at some of the US ETF’s such as iShares Corporate Bond ETF (LQD-N) where you could do a little bit better.
