Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. today announced the estimated annual capital gains distributions for the Vanguard ETFsTM listed below for the 2013 tax year. Please note that these are estimated amounts only as of December 2, 2013 and reflect forward-looking information which may cause the estimates to change before the ETFs’ December 15, 2013 tax year-end.
