Not sure about stocks but if you didn't need the money for awhile then you could always invest in a GIC.

Why not consider a share certificate? You can purchase these at any bank at 6 month to 5 year terms.
Quote:
Certificates are 'fixed-term' savings instruments. This means that in return for agreeing to leave funds in the account for a fixed-term, you'll enjoy the benefit of higher dividend rates. Withdrawing all or part of your initial investment may result in dividend penalties.


You can also do a CD (not a compact disc, a certificate of deposit). This is similar to the above but usually hold higher APR's. Much safer than the stock market.

A Certificate of Deposit is a medium term investment that provides investors with an opportunity to generate a higher return than that earned from a regular savings account.
