Product Disclaimers:

Mutual Funds

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Mutual fund securities are not covered by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation or by any other government deposit insurer. The payment of distributions from an income trust mutual fund should not be confused with a fund's performance, rate of return, or yield. If distributions paid by the fund are greater than the performance of the fund, then your original investment will shrink. Distributions paid as a result of capital gains realized by a fund and income and dividends earned by a fund are taxable in your hands in the year they are paid. Your adjusted cost base will be reduced by the amount of any returns of capital. If your adjusted cost base goes below zero, then you will have to pay capital gains tax on the amount below zero.

The rate of return, mathematical table or illustration shown is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the mutual fund or asset allocation service, or returns on an investment in the mutual fund or from the use of the asset allocation service.

Labour-Sponsored Fund

Labour-sponsored investment funds (LSIFs) are not guaranteed, their value changes frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Availability and amounts of tax credits are subject to certain conditions and limitations and are subject to repayment if shares are not held for eight years.

Segregated Funds

Subject to any applicable death and maturity guarantee, any part of the premium or other amount that is allocated to a segregated fund is invested at the risk of the contract holder and may increase or decrease in value according to fluctuations in the market value of the assets in the segregated funds.

Leverage Risk

Using borrowed money to finance the purchase of securities involves greater risk than a purchase using cash resources only. If you borrow money to purchase securities, your responsibility to repay the loan and pay interest as required by the loan’s terms remains the same even if the value of the securities purchased declines.

Investments in Limited Partnerships

There are a number of risks associated with an investment. Investors should refer to each Partnership's offering documents for details. Important information about this offering is contained in the prospectus relating to this offering, a copy of which should be obtained from the agents or the offices of designated subagents. You should review the prospectus carefully, and consult your Advisors, including tax Advisors, before making an investment decision. This material does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy any security. Such an offer can only be made by prospectus.
