General Information

Distribution Policy

For historical distribution amounts, please see distribution information.


Distributions received by the Trust from the portfolio securities will be distributed to the Unitholders monthly. Distributions received from issuers in the portfolio securities have various tax treatments: some are taxed as dividends, some as interest income and others as a return of capital. Amounts received as a return of capital are not taxable but must be used to reduce the adjusted cost base of an investor's Units. Dividends received by an individual are generally subject to the normal gross-up and dividend tax-credit rules applicable to dividends received on securities of a taxable Canadian Corporation.

The tax treatment and classification of revenue of distributions received are reported by the underlying issuers in the portfolio securities either at the time of declaration or on an annual basis.

A Unitholder will generally be required to include in the calculation of income the net income and the net realized taxable capital gains of the Trust paid or payable to the Unitholder in the year. If the distributions by the Trust to a Unitholder in any year exceed the net income and net realized capital gains of the Trust for the year paid or payable to the Unitholder, such distributions will not be taxable but will reduce the adjusted cost base of the Unitholder's Units.
