(1) This information is provided as at [insert date of end of financial year] of the year shown.

(2) Management expense ratio is based on total expenses (excluding commissions and other portfolio transaction costs) for the stated period and is expressed as an annualized percentage of daily average net asset value during the period.

(3) The trading expense ratio represents total commissions and other portfolio transaction costs expressed as an annualized percentage of daily average net asset value during the period.

(4) The Fund's portfolio turnover rate indicates how actively the Fund's portfolio adviser manages its portfolio investments.  A portfolio turnover rate of 100% is equivalent to the Fund buying and selling all of the securities in its portfolio once in the course of the year.  The higher a fund's portfolio turnover rate in a year, the greater the trading costs payable by the fund in the year, and the greater the chance of an investor receiving taxable capital gains in the year.  There is not necessarily a relationship between a high turnover rate and the performance of a fund.


(d) repealing subsection 3.1(2);

(e) repealing subsection 3.1(6) and substituting the following:

"(6) Except for net assets, net asset value and distributions, calculate per unit/share values on the basis of the weighted average number of unit/shares outstanding over the financial period.";

(f) repealing subsection 3.1(12) and substituting the following:

"(12) (a) Calculate the trading expense ratio by dividing

 (i) the total commissions and other portfolio transaction costs disclosed in the statement of operations; by

(ii) the same denominator used to calculate the management expense ratio.

(b) If an investment fund invests in securities of other investment funds, calculate the trading expense ratio using the methodology required for the calculation of the management expense ratio in section 15.2 of the Instrument.";

(g) repealing subsection 3.1(13) and substituting the following:

"(13) Provide the closing market price only if the investment fund is traded on an exchange."; and
  
(h) repealing the introduction to the "Financial & Operating Highlights (with comparative figures)" table in section 3.2 and substituting the following:

"An investment fund that is a scholarship plan must comply with Item 3.1, except that the following table must replace "The Fund's Net Assets per [Unit/Share]" table and the "Ratios and Supplemental Data" table.".
