    Canadian Economic data (historical and forecast).
    The data is expensive (Shouldn't forecasts be free? :)), but who cares...
    if you need Canadian data you can get it here:

      FX-Tick data

      or

      http://global.fxdd.com/de/mt1m-data.html
      import it to MT4 and convert/export it to .csv
      You have to use the new version of Excel and not OpenOffice since the old Excel and OO have the limitation of 65k lines. In this way you get M1 data which you ask for.

      Well the tick data from gaincapital is less complicated since you can already download it on csv format and it goes back to the year 2000.

      Once unzipped, the data may be imported directly.

      It is free, and (at lease the majors are) of reasonable quality.
