If you don't own any Bitcoin (XBT) to trade for Ether (ETH) then you'll first want complete verification and fund your account with dollars which you can then trade for Ether (ETH) on the ETH/CAD orderbook.  When your order fills, Ether (ETH) will instantly appear within your account’s built-in wallet on the exchange and become available for withdrawal.  

For small or quick-fill orders where setting a limit price may not be of great importance, you can buy using the Dashboard section to place a market order. For larger trades we recommend using the Trade section to place a limit order and wait for it to fill at a specific price you desire.
