1 This Vanguard ETF invests primarily in a U.S.-domiciled Vanguard fund.  To ensure that there is no duplication of management fees chargeable in connection with the Vanguard ETF and its investment in the Vanguard fund, the management fee payable by the Vanguard ETF to Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. set out above is reduced by the aggregate of the management fee payable by the Vanguard fund to an affiliate of Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. and certain expenses of the Vanguard fund that are paid directly by the Vanguard fund (together, the “Vanguard fund total expense ratio”).  The Vanguard fund total expense ratio is embedded in the market value of the Vanguard fund shares in which the Vanguard ETF invests.
