For funds that are publicly traded/quoted try going to and looking up the public symbol there.  For your
example the symbol on the Yahoo site is F0CAN05LW8.TO as traded or at
least quoted on the Toronto exchange.  As an American I am not sure how
Yahoo came up with that, but it probably makes sense to you.

I am not sure whether GnuCash can be coaxed into downloading Canadian
fund quotes, but if it can perhaps another Canadian user can tell you
about that.

In the US many mutual fund prices are not downloadable.  For a couple
that I have I need to go to an appropriate website manually when I want
a price.
