The Vanguard FTSE Canada Index ETF seeks to track the performance of the FTSE Canada Index. This Index is a market capitalization-weighted index representing the performance of Canadian large- and mid-capitalization stocks. There is a chance that returns from large-capitalization stocks will trail returns from the overall stock market. Large-capitalization stocks tend to go through cycles of doing better - or worse - than the stock market in general. These periods have, in the past, lasted for several years. Companies included in the Index represent industry classifications that maintain an index sector balance that is in line with the composition of the universe of eligible companies within the Index's then-current defined market capitalization range.
