How do I invest with Vanguard Canada?

There are two ways to buy our funds:

  1. With the help of a third-party financial advisor
  2. Through an online brokerage account

Financial advisor

A financial advisor who manages your investments can invest in Vanguard funds for you.

Many investors find working with a financial advisor helpful, especially as they build wealth and their financial situation becomes more complex.

In addition to investment advice, a financial advisor can help you with taxes, retirement, estate planning, insurance, education planning and more.

If you don't have an advisor, ask your network for referrals or choose one through the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada or the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada. From each site's homepage, select the Investors tab.

Online brokerage account:

If you're a do-it-yourself investor, you can buy Vanguard ETFs during normal trading hours through an online brokerage.

To buy Vanguard mutual funds, check with your online brokerage firm for availability.
