TORONTO, Aug. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. ("TDAM") today announced a notional non-cash reinvested distribution (a "Notional Distribution") for the TD Morningstar ESG U.S. Corporate Bond Index ETF (the "TD ETF"). A Notional Distribution occurs when a distribution from the TD ETF is made in the form of units, and then immediately consolidated with the units held prior to the distribution, so that the total number of units held after the distribution is identical to the number of units held prior to the distribution.

The Notional Distribution has been made to all unitholders of record of the TD ETF as at June 30, 2022:

Fund Name


Per Unit

TD Morningstar ESG U.S. Corporate Bond Index ETF



Up until the record date, the TD ETF did not qualify as a mutual fund trust under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act") and was considered a unit trust, as such term is defined under the Tax Act. As at the record date indicated above, the TD ETF qualified to be a financial institution, as defined under the Tax Act, for purposes of the "mark-to-market" rules contained in the Tax Act because one or more financial institutions held more than 50% of the market value of the TD ETF.

The Tax Act contains special rules for determining the income of a financial institution, including, but not limited to, the realization of all unrealized gains or losses on mark-to-market property held by the financial institution on income account at the end of any given tax year. In acknowledging this change of status, the TD ETF was required to recognize a deemed year-end for tax purposes and distribute any net income (including unrealized and realized capital gains as ordinary income) earned by the TD ETF up until the deemed year-end (reflected by the record date indicated above).

In early 2023, the tax characteristics of all distributions for the year 2022 for the TD ETF will be reported to brokers via the Canadian Depository for Securities (CDS).
