@robfordlives The duration statistic I assume you are using (modified duration) takes yield to maturity as an input to estimate price loss/gain. As @Thal81 points out this is not the Bank of Canada rate or any particular bond rate you might see in the media. So it’s not observable.

To get an estimate of how your ETF might change in price with changes in rates you would look at the type and maturity (term) of the bonds it holds. Then focus on potential rate changes on those types of bonds.
