About Vanguard

Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. is a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of The Vanguard Group, Inc. and manages $4.4 billion (CAD) in assets. The Vanguard Group, Inc. is one of the world's largest investment management companies and a leading provider of company-sponsored retirement plan services. Vanguard manages more than $3 trillion (USD) in global assets, including more than $455 billion (USD) in global ETF assets. Vanguard has offices in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Asia. The firm offers nearly 160 funds to U.S. investors and an additional 120 funds, including ETFs, to clients in the other markets in which the firm operates.

What sets Vanguard apart – and lets Vanguard put investors first around the world – is the ownership structure of The Vanguard Group, Inc., in the United States. Rather than being publicly traded or owned by a small group of individuals, The Vanguard Group, Inc. is owned by Vanguard's U.S.-domiciled funds and ETFs. Those funds, in turn, are owned by their investors. This unique mutual structure aligns Vanguard interests with those of its investors and drives the culture, philosophy, and policies throughout the Vanguard organization worldwide. As a result, Canadian investors benefit from Vanguard's stability and experience, low-cost investing, and client focus. For more information, please visit vanguardcanada.ca.

All asset figures are as of February 28, 2015, unless otherwise stated.

Commissions, management fees, and expenses all may be associated with the Vanguard ETFs.  This offering is only made by prospectus.  The prospectus contains important detailed information about the securities being offered.  Copies are available from Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. at www.vanguardcanada.ca.
