Under the Plan, Shareholders have the option to purchase additional shares through reinvestment of dividends at a current three per cent discount (Dividend Reinvestment Component) or receive the equivalent to 102 per cent of the dividends payable in cash (Premium Dividend Component).
Eligible shareholders enrolled in either the Dividend Reinvestment Component or the Premium DividendTM Component may purchase new shares at a discount to the average market price under the optional cash payment component (the OCP Component) of the Plan by directly investing up to CDN$5,000.00 per quarter. The applicable discount under the OCP Component is also determined from time to time by the Board.

To participate in the Plan, eligible shareholders must reside in Canada.

An eligible shareholder who was either not properly enrolled in the dividend reinvestment component of the Prior Plan or who wishes to enroll in the Premium Dividend Component of the Plan, must enroll in the Plan either (i) directly if such shareholder is a registered shareholder, or (ii) if such shareholder is a beneficial shareholder whose shares are held through a broker, investment dealer, financial institution or other nominee, indirectly through such broker, investment dealer, financial institution or other nominee.
