TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2016 /CNW/ - FT Portfolios Canada Co. today announced the estimated annual capital gains distributions for its Exchange Traded Funds listed below for the 2016 tax year. Please note that these are estimated amounts only as of November 21, 2016 and reflect forward looking information which may cause the estimates to change before the ETF's December 2016 tax year-end.
