Looking for Canadian ETF equivalent to VUG, MGK, or VOOG

Looking for an equivalent ETF to VUG, MGK, or VOOG for US listed large cap growth equities that can be tax efficiently held in a registered account. USD or CAD hedged doesn't matter that much.

Thanks in advance.

just convert your money and buy those funds.

The only tax advantage you get is when they're in an RRSP. You save the 15% dividend withholding tax in an RRSP.

I know with VOOG there is still the dividend withholding tax in an RRSP account which I'm looking to avoid.

There is no withholding tax on VOOG or any US listed equity in an RRSP.

Yes my bad, I forgot there is different tax treatment between RESP and RRSP. This solves my question which is basically buy it if being held in an RRSP.

Thanks all.
